Four Patch Quilt: Circa 1880; Pennsylvania

Well made Four Patch quilt with a good variety of late 19th century fabrics. The light tones are well placed so it gives the effect of a chain in addition to the primary Four Patch. It measures 86" x 88" which is rather large for the 1880's when it was made. Pristine condition; Pennsylvania origin. The backing fabric is shown in the last thumbnail photo. It may appear black on some monitors but is actually an indigo ground.
