Several features elevate this One Patch Quilt pattern far beyond the basic pattern that it is. Subtle variation in the use of printed red fabrics add an effective shading. Abutting the blocks gives a nice positive/negative effect and finally, the strong zig zag border frames it all beautifully. The quilt is in excellent condition and nicely quilted. The white blocks alternate two different leaf patterns. Measurements are 68" x 72"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.
