This is an unusual pattern done with a wonderful variety of 1880's calico fabrics. Thumbnails show many of them clearly including several of cheater's cloth. The light spot on the upper left border of the overall image is on the photo only; it is not a spot on the quilt.It is in unwashed condition. Backing is muslin. The size; pattern and variety of fabrics would make this a wonderful wall hanging. It measures 66" x 72". Pennsylvania origin.
