The chintz border makes this Irish Chain quilt more elegant than most. In addition, the fine quilting depicts different floral patterns in the white blocks. Measurements are 102" x 104"; Pennsylvania origin; circa 1830. The sole condition flaw is a stain primarily on the back of one corner. Only with close examination does it show on the front as the brown blends in with the colors of the printed chintz.
