This custom made quilt is huge--it will cover a king-sized bed, plus. The measurements are 8'8" x 9'8"; this is from the late 1800's or early 1900's, when no-one had a bed that size. The center area is 65' x 66" This is very heavily quilted all over, by machine, and covered with embroidered (by machine) roses all over the top The lovely roses have a thin ribbon connecting them that almost goes into a heart pattern in places. The underside is plain white; there is a small smudge (probably wash out) along an edge where this was folded. I have not tried to clean any part of it. The edging is a 1/2" wide floral patterned hem. There are a couple of small gray spots in the left side, see the photo and a larger spot on the underside, other than that I found no problems with the gorgeous piece. This quilt is not overly thick, but very heavy due to the size, obviously custom made. Place this on top of your bed for a bedspread and enjoy the beauty and the connection with the past.
