| This great antique quilt was found in the Lehigh Valley, PA. Dating from the last quarter of the 19th century, it measures about 90 inches square.
|Featuring five inch squares set on point in a pattern that includes the concentric squares of a trip around the world quilt in some areas, and radiating rays of color in others; the whole being well balanced but with many areas of focus and interest.|
|See all of our pictures for the wide variety of fabrics used, including figural prints, traditional calicos in chrome yellow, double pink, blue and overdyed green, cheater cloth prints and madder browns, Turkey reds and paisleys.|
|Of special note is the piece in one corner depicting a scene from Dickens' Pickwick Papers.|
|Quilted throughout in a 1 1/4 inch grid at about 7 stitches per inch.|
|The back of the quilt is an 1880's madder brown floral/paisley stripe print, and there's a separate applied binding of a double pink calico.|
