Recorded on May 10, 2008 from an email by a quilt appraiser in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Here are some stats on the Buckingham Quilt:
81 ½" X 89"
Medallion-style, center is Damask fabric, blue floral on brown ground (approx. 54 1/2" wide). It has borders on 3 sides: 3" wide on top, 15" wide on the sides. The border fabric is a brown & tan stripe, and each border has been pieced in many pieces. It has been hand pieced.
The back is 2 main pieces of a blue & white striped fabric that is homespun, as the "stripes" range in widths from 1/4 - 1/2 inches wide, and the stripes are not consistently straight. On the top edge, there is a 13" border (pieced with 5 pieces), and one side a 3" border of a dark brown wool, that is home-dyed and homespun. There is a binding that is approx. 1/2" wide (though not very consistent), that is mostly a green jacquard, with a piece or two of a lavender fabric. The binding has been hand applied.
There are several areas that have patches, and several areas that have repairs. There are some rust stains.
There are some loose seams, and holes in the dark brown fabric.
It is hand quilted in an all-over pattern of large diamonds, approx. 5 stitches to the inch.
I would say the measurements above are close, but only approximate.
