Quilt belonging to Hazel Wood Borst
Overall: 80 1/2 x 74 in. ( 204.5 x 188 cm )
Quilt of printed and woven cotton fabrics pieced in blocks in bow-tie motif. Blue and white patterned back, red and white edge binding.
This quilt was previously owned by Hazel Wood Borst (b. Middleburgh, NY, 1882, d. ?), maternal grandmother of the donor. The bow-tie pattern is typical of this period, although the use of ornate, printed floral cottons is distinctive.
Gift of Catherine H. Smith on behalf of the Borst grandchildren
