This traditional Chimney Sweep (aka Album Patch) quilt is done in a nice variety of printed fabrics with the red center as the only solid color. Pinks are placed symmetrically around the red center and in all four corners indicative of the careful planning with which this was made. Half blocks are used on all sides to create a nice inner frame. The quilt measures 80" square. Several very light smudges but essentially very clean with strong fabrics. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870.
