This Hourglass (aka Bow Tie) quilt is made of a rich combination of fabrics that work beautifully together. The background is a deep blue/green highlighted with a yellow print that combines perfectly with the yellow triangles in the Hourglasses. With careful examination, one sees the deep indigo Hourglasses that are at right angles to the primary ones. The fabrics date from as early as the 1830's to about 1870. The quilt is in pristine, probably unwashed condition. Measurements are 80" x 85"> Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870.
