This rendition of Birds in the Air is certainly an imaginative one. Each large triangle is filled with cotton crazy patches. It is finely made and in pristine, unwashed condition. The small irregular pieces look like a collage. The off blocks are a tiny indigo and white gingham check fabric. The indigo print backing and inner border are from the 1920's while all is is from the 19th century. Measurements are 68" x 74"; Pennsylvania origin.
