The Rocky Road to Kansas Chore Coat features a medium weight, densely batted 100% cotton quilt that is hand-pieced and machine quilted. It features a calico background that is perfectly faded, and provides a stunning background for the 'Rocky Road to Kansas' string stars. There are a vast number of calico and shirting fabrics, and some areas where the top layer has worn through, and intact fabric hidden beneath the string star blocks are visible. I salvaged the very best parts of this well-loved quilt, and am thrilled to give it a new life. This piece also includes inseam side pockets, and antique brass snaps.
As this is a vintage quilt, it is possible it shows it age in the form of wear and/or discolorations - this quilt in particular has fading and wear throughout. In addition, there is fabric degradation, areas exposing the fabric the blocks were pieced over, but no exposed batting. If you love a quilt that shows the life it has lived and treasure that character and history like I do, you really can't get any better than this gal - quilts in this condition are my favorite to work with. These are not viewed as flaws, but rather giving it character and showing it's history. I have done my best to capture these areas in the photos, but is possible that not all are photographed. Please review all images as returns are not accepted - no exceptions.
