At first glance, this quilt pattern looks like an Irish Chain but in fact, it is different. It also takes a moment to realize that the border is actually made of the same squares as the interior but turned on point. Nice variety of deep indigo prints. Well quilted with alternating white blocks done in clamshell and square grid patterns. Excellent condition. Measures 68" x 80"; New York State origin. Circa 1880.
