It is easy to see how this very geometric pattern came to be named Carpenter's Square. The three dimensional effect is quite striking with the lines appearing to be interlaced. Unlike most renditions of this pattern, the maker varied the indigo prints throughout adding further interest. Quilted with diagonal lines and diamonds that are at a 45 degree angle to the pieced strips. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 76" x 78".

This powerful and most unusual Russian Sunflower quilt is exceptional in several ways. The combination of the Sunflower pattern with the diamond diagonal grid is brilliant. While in some ways the two patterns appear quite different, in actuality the repetition of diamond shaped pieces in both makes for wonderful harmony. The indigo ground is not often seen and the appliqued hearts throughout the border are indicative of the warmth with which the quilt was made. It has been professionally launde ...click for details
