A circa 1870's calico Mennonite quilt from Lancaster County Pennsylvania, in the Sawtooth Center Diamond pattern. Measures about 80 inches square, in excellent, unused condition.

Price: $1195

Using two contrasting fabrics, an overdyed green calico and a watermelon double pink, the quilter has created a bold graphic statement, traditional in the Amish and Mennonite communities.
Quilted with a cable pattern in the outer border, grids in the pink and a feather pattern in the inner green diamond in dark thread at about 6 stitches per inch.
While only two colors are used in the quilt top, the separate binding is applied with a different double pink print.
The backing fabric is a gorgeous late 19th century floral print on brown.
