Red and green antique doll quilt in a nice small size, 15" by 12". It is hand sewn together with treadle machine quilting. It has a very early striped fabric back. The quilt has been played with and washed so is very soft but also has some weak areas to fabric. No big hole or missing fabric just fraying a little. There are a few spots on the front that maybe would wash out. It is all original and looks nice hanging. Circa 1880

The choice and placement of colors create additional patterns within the traditional Economy Patch. The consistent use of green center squares surrounded by a variety of red, pinks, blues and yellows make for nice diagonal movement as well. The purpleish border is a surprising touch. It is well pieced and quilted. The quilt is in outstanding, unwashed condition. There is a small light spot on the border that appears to be a flaw in the printing rather than a later loss of color...
