Unlike many Bowtie quilt patterns, this charming crib quilt has an unusual positive/negative effect. While the primary Bowties are blue, one can also see the white blocks as echoing them. Several different, very closely related solid blue fabrics were used. The border is nicely quilted with overlapping circles. The quilt is in excellent condition. It measures 33 1/2" x 36 1/2". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1930.
