In nearly 40 years of specializing in antique quilts (gulp!), I have never seen one made this way. I have seen several pillows but never a quilt.It has a wonderfully sophisticated palette and the look of an eye dazzler.
The embroidery is done in a stepped pattern forming diamonds. Each diamond is set in its own block. There is a subtle variation in color forming a rectangle within the overall pattern. The embroidery is done in cotton. The quilt measures 76" x 78". The green and yellow borders pick up colors within the quilt. It is nicely quilted with a cable pattern throughout the borders. Kempton, Pennsylvania (Berks County) origin; circa 1920.
