It is difficult to characterize this unique quilt. The Carpenter's Wheel center is surrounded by Flying Geese; King's Crown and Rolling Stone corner blocks. I'm not sure whether this is enough to characterize it as a strippy sampler quilt. The quilt was found in eastern Pennsylvania. It is imaginative and well made. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 68" x 76"; circa 1880.
