Amish Bricks Quilt with Embroidery: Circa 1930

Amish Bricks Quilt embellished with floral embroidery. This type of embroidery is usually done by the Amish on pillows or seat cushions; I have not seen it on a quilt. Made of wools with cotton binding and backing; circa 1930. Inner frame cleverly relates to the primary bricks pattern. Mid-west origin, probably Indiana as the feather quilting pattern in the border is most often from that area. Excellent condition; measures 67" x 72".Outer border is more of a gray color than shows on my monitor.
