The use of color and fabric could not be better in this Carpenter's Wheel quilt. The green background beautifully sets off the deep indigo and rose tones while the pink diamonds give a bursting effect to each star. And who could ask for a better border treatment than this Delectable Mountains? Nicely quilted including patterns of concentric arcs in the green sashing. The quilt is in excellent condition; made circa 1860's. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; measurements are 70" x 88".
