This stunning geometric quilt might pass for Amish but in actuality, it is from Wales. While the pieced pattern looks like something the Amish might have done, the quilting patterns are quite different.The circles on the outer borders as well as the fans in the corners are often seen in Welsh quilts. It is made of medium weight wools and batting. Condition is very good with a few minimal spots of wear. Measures 72" x 80". Reverses to a whole cloth in a luscious red wine color. Colors are very deep and rich but not as dark as on my monitor. The brown is a warm, chocolate tone.
