Nine Patch doll quilt on a vibrant red print ground consisting of several different printed fabrics. It is machine quilted in a pattern of squares like the nine patches. There are three size groups of nine patches. Could this have been because they were leftover from other quilts or were they practice patches for a young girl? Measurements are 16 1/2" x 23 1/2". Parkersburg, West Virginia origin; circa 1890.
