It’s hunting season! Antique hunting scene toile quilt circa 1815

This beautiful wholecloth toile quilt dates to circa 1815.  The quilt features a wonderful madder purple copper plate printed rare French hunting scene toile. The color of the printing is a wonderful eggplant purple.  The backing is a traditional blue stripe ticking fabric. The front is made from two panels of the toile and the back is made from various panels of the ticking. 

Most reproduction fabric collections have a toile or two in their line – what a relatively easy way to make your 1812 quilt! 

This quilt has survived in amazingly wonderful condition considering it's age and is currently for sale on E-bay.
