This Sawtooth pattern quilt (aka Indian Meadow) is as crisp and fresh as the day it was made in the 1870's. The fabrics are beautiful with an unusual soft pink print in the off triangles. It is well quilted with clamshell patterns in the printed triangles; diagonal lines in the pink triangles and a basketweave pattern throughout the border. A sawtooth inner border surrounds the blocks on three sides. On the fourth, the block itself provides the triangle edge. Measurements are 75" x 88".
