This Postage Stamp quilt is actually a 49 patch. The maker added a blue square outside the corner of each block to create a continuous chain between the blocks. She (presumably) used the same squared turned on point to create a lovely border. It is nicely quilted with swirling pinwheel flowers. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 86" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880's.
