It is fascinating that this 19th century Carpenter's Square quilt looks as though it was computer generated in the 21st century. The use of solid red with white makes the pattern especially bold. It is very well quilted using curvilinear patterns that are an interesting counterpoint to the straight edge pieced pattern. The quilt is in excellent condition. It measures 70" square; made circa 1880.
