Ocean Waves Quilt: Circa 1880; Ohio

This traditional Ocean Waves quilt is enhanced with a lovely sawtooth border. It is nicely quilted with circles in the white blocks filled with star-like flowers. Chevron quilting patterns are done throughout the border. It is made of three different indigo prints, all with very small circles. The location of the inner and border triangles in several places combine to form what looks like a larger indigo block. This is likely by accident, but a happy one. Condition is excellent. It measures 70" x 82": Ohio origin; circa 1880.
