It is remarkable that a simple Four Patch quilt pattern done in just two colors can create such a complex image. The stepped placement of the indigo printed squares creates great diagonal movement. The diamonds within the Four Patch seem to twirl all around the quilt. The eye can focus on either the large printed blocks or smaller pieced ones for the primary design. It is made of several different indigo prints. The quilt was made circa 1850; Pennsylvania origin. Measurements are 82" x 85". It was professionally laundered and is in excellent condition.
