The Oakleaf blocks are so densely packed in this appliqué quilt that they form a secondary pattern of groups of four green leaves. The border, in addition to continuing the leaves, has hearts throughout. The Oakleaf is a traditional pattern but placement of the blocks in this example gives it an abstract quality as well. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860. Measurements are 74" x 86".
