This Nine Patch in Bars quilt was evidently packed away and never used as it is in the same condition as when it was made some 125 years ago. It is made with a lovely group of fabrics. The browns and pinks vary but the consistent yellow in each center makes it pop. It is well pieced and quilted. To my eye, this is a very sophisticated country quilt. Measurements are 81" x 86", larger than most of this period. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
