This country quilt has a bit more sophistication than most. The blocks filled with One Patches are set so that there are diagonal lines of color. Bars between the blocks are solid color red while the border is a small print very close in color. Excellent condition; short green Bars between the blocks started as a darker color but have faded uniformly to a soft green. Measures 66" x 70". Frederick County, Maryland origin; circa 1880.
