It's interesting to see how such a successful pattern is made entirely of different size triangles. The quilting patterns repeat the triangles theme. Both the pattern and colors make this a very strong graphic. In case it is not evident on all monitors, the off blocks are dark brown. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 78" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1890.
