This Thousand Pyramids quilt is made of a wonderful grouping of early 19th century fabrics. It is quilted with double clamshell quilting in the body and an unusual design of concentric arcs in the wide glazed chintz border. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. Some might want it laundered to even out the white background. This can be done but since others would prefer the unwashed feel, I have decided to leave it to the purchaser. A note is sewn to a corner that reads "Barbara Krair's (sic) from Great Grandma". Lancaster County origin; circa 1830. Measurements are 98" x 101".
