This pieced Center Medallion quilt has a wonderful assortment of fabrics and patterns that are beautifully blended. The Mariner's Compass is not often seen as the focus of a Center Medallion quilt. It is surrounded by a variety of triangles, then Pinwheels and a Delectable Mountains Border on three sides with Pinwheels on the fourth. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. The backing appears to be a home dyed fabric. Measurements are 86" x 93"; probably Virginia origin.
