$225 - "Hawaiian Applique" 80" x 80", quilt top by Illinois quilter, patterns by Elizabeth Root, custom machine quilted by Debbie Cinnaglio, May 2010.

Condition - excellent - new with strong visual impact. Machine appliqued batik motifs on bright white background of purple motif best shows the background color. (If it ever stops raining here and the fog lifts, I may be able to get better photos!!) Any shadowing is due to poor lighting not the quilt! Machine custom quilting with thread color change - pebble work/echo and moderate to heavily quilted....very well done. Batting: Quilter's Dream Cotton Request.

The only flaw I saw was a small spot on one block (see photo below)...looks worse in the close-up photo than it is.

Backing: alternating black strips and lime/turquoise large print. Fabric hanging sleeve has been added.

This comes with a certified AQS appraisal - insurance/replacement value of $4,800. It is not transferable, but provided for documentation. Selling price obviously is far less than what the maker paid for the custom quilting! Large quilt collection of my elderly friend is being dispersed due to illness.

PayPal payment within 12 hrs. Ships via USPS flat rate priority @ $18.90, the next business day if possible. Smoke free home.  Email me using link on right side bar to claim the item. US sales only.
 The only flaw I found!  This backing fabric is the correct color....
 ....unlike this one which photographed yellowish...the fabric is bright white.  It isn't always easy to get accurate photos but happy I do have one to show you!
This is a view of the backing to show how heavily and beautifully it's quilted.
