This unusual quilt is intended to be completely reversible. One side is a One Patch and the reverse is Wild Geese(aka Birds in the Air). While the quilt was made in the late 19th century, the Wild Geese incorporates some fabrics from the mid century. It is especially interesting to find elegant glazed chintz in three of the blocks of this otherwise country quilt. Both sides are in excellent condition; there is a small amount of color bleed on one of the glazed chintz blocks (visible in thumbnail photo) but no other condition apologies. Measures 62" x 74".
