Crib Quilt consisting of Bars filled with One Patches. Excellent, unwashed condition. Top was made circa 1890 and, based upon the backing, probably quilted in the 1930's.

Droll seems like the best word to describe this unusual 1930's strippy quilt depicting various fruits. The same fabric was pieced in two different colorways to create an unusual palette.

Can be used equally well on either side. Pristine condition; measures 76 x 82".
