Morning Glory and Monkey Wrench Quilt: Circa 1930; Pa.
$875.

This Morning Glories quilt combines two traditional patterns that are rarely, if ever, seen together. The geometric Monkey Wrench is an unusual, but effective, matching with the floral pattern. The entire piece is light and airy with lovely quilting and a graceful scalloped border. Measurements are 80" x 92" to outer edges of scallops. Made by Marie Kritcher in McKeesport, Pennsylvania in the 1930's for her son Larry. Perhaps that explains the choice of the Monkey Wrench pattern.
