Bold Sampler Quilt displaying 20 different patterns, both traditional and original. The mauve/gray color in the quilt probably began life as a deeper tone but it is very consistent; unusual and to my eye, a very pleasing color. The quilt measures 70" x 86"; probably Southern origin; circa 1890. The back is navy blue against which the white quilting is highlighted.
