Thousand Pyramids Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania

The official name of this quilt pattern is 1000 Pyramids but it does not begin to tell the story of this amazing piece. It has 40,4000 triangles on the front! The maker was clearly OCD long before the diagnosis was dreamed up. Even more amazing is that she (presumably) went on to piece the back as well. Squares making up the back are shown in thumbnail photos. Solid color orange and red fabrics are well placed throughout the quilt giving it a bit of a twinkle. Both sides are in excellent condition. The quilt measures 70" x 73". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
