This wonderfully graphic quilt "reads" as both Streak of Lightning and Tumbling Blocks. It is difficult to know whether that was the maker's intention. The use of solid colors heightens the effect of both patterns. It is as well crafted as it is designed. Measurements are 70" x 73"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1910.
