This pieced Center Medallion quilt is an extraordinary sampler of fabrics and design. Each frame is filled with a huge selection of fabrics, most of which are printed. A variety of triangle shapes makes for variation but with consistency. The center Sixteen Patch block draws the eye to a pattern not seen elsewhere in the quilt. The red band is especially effective in emphasizing the structure of the multiple frames. Measurements are 78" x 89"; excellent condition. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1870's.
