This Double Hourglass crib quilt is more complex than it may first appear. The white triangles are set in four indigo diamond shaped blocks. The sawtooth border and four patch corner blocks are a good juxtaposition to the indigo ground. Each corner has an embroidered initial and the date 1900. Measures 28 1/2" square; very good condition. Pennsylvania origin.
