Nine Patch crib quilt that is one of the most elegant examples of this pattern that I have seen. The lush variety of printed fabrics date from the 1830's - 50's. Setting the blocks on point and creating a diagonal sashing make the entire piece more dramatic than when set straight. A finely scalloped border is a wonderful frame and the blue printed backing fabric is jaw dropping. It is in excellent condition and has been professionally laundered. Measurements are 32" x 37 1/2"; New York State origin.
