Diamonds within diamonds most resemble the Eye of God in this unusual quilt pattern. Greek key is a brilliant choice of border for this bold design. What is most surprising is that the entire quilt is made of 1 1/2" squares; there are no strips of fabric. Well planned with color placement of the diamond outlines making for a symmetrical pattern. Pristine, unwashed condition. Measures 81" x 90". The blue is a very pleasing tone that is softer than on my monitor. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
