This basic Sixteen Patch quilt has an unusual vibrancy because of the flame red used next to a variety of brown and black fabrics. The red binding frames it well. All of the materials are fairly heavy wool. There are a few area of slight discoloration to the browns but they are dark marks on dark fabric so they are barely visible. Measurements are 61" x 65". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890.
