This pieced crib quilt comes closest to the patterns known as Shadowbox or Economy Patch. The addition of the squares and rectangles around the center block make it more complex. The double triangle border adds a new shape to the mix. The use of red triangles on the outside nicely picks up the reds within and makes for a good frame. Measurements are 38" x 39". Excellent condition; Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's.
