This princess feather quilt is particularly bold and vivacious. The floral center of each of the four feathers anchors the swirling arms. Most unusual are the vines and leaves separating the feathers. It is very finely executed; quilted with double rows of diamonds in the white and botehs in the red and green. Measurements are 82" x 85". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition.
