1890s Antique Quilt Patchwork Bear
- How it works
Handmade PATCHWORK BEAR made from an antique quilt dating from the 1890s!
We fell in love with this quilt and the history it holds- the stories it could tell in it's over 130 years of life! There is visible wear/abrasion, particularly in the red and black fabrics due to the way these colors were dyed at the time. I took care to use the least worn parts of the quilt to create this heirloom patchwork bear so you can hold a piece of history.
Measures approximately 17 inches tall with embroidered eyes and nose.
At The Patchwork Bear, we find antique & vintage quilts that are beyond repair to use and take the usable quilted material to give it new life. Since this is made from a vintage quilt, there will be some wear/abrasion/aging.
