This Joseph's Coat Quilt has all the bells and whistles one looks for in this typically Lancaster County pattern. It repeats seven stripes of the most desirable colors with a diagonal stripe border. Each color is well quilted with a different pattern. The border is quilted with a chevrons pattern. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. The backing is a brown and red print shown in the last thumbnail. Measurements are 79" x 80"; circa 1880.
