Mennonite Wool Fans Quilt; Ca. 1890; Pa.

This is a classic Fans pattern, well made in nearly all solid color wools. Unusual background color of slate blue/gray. (The photos show the colors as more blue than in reality.) Pink and green embroidery offset the primarily dark colors of the quilt. Cable quilting in the border further adds to the overall depth of the pattern. Very slight fading throughout the border with one area of subtle discoloration visible in overall photo. Circa 1890; Pennsylvania Mennonite. Measures 68" square.
