Dramatic barely describes this wonderful Philadelphia Pavement Quilt. Postage stamp size pieces, while set on square, give the impression of a diagonal design because of the use of color. The consistent use of bands of yellow, red and blue create both an overall X and Diamond patterns. It is well quilted with cable patterns in the borders and small diamonds throughout the body. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 82" x 86".
