This Economy Patch quilt has been packed away and is as fresh as the day it was made some 125 years ago. The solid and printed reds contrast wonderfully with the variety of multicolor fabrics. Three borders echoing the colors of the body of the quilt tie it all together. The overall palette is somewhat different than one usually sees making for a sophisticated looking country quilt. Measurements are 69" x 79"; Pennsylvania origin.
