This Streak of Lightning quilt is most unusual in its construction. It is made with small triangles, more reminiscent of an Ocean Waves than the usual Streak of Lightning. It is exquisitely quilted with detailed wreaths and hearts in each white block. It is made with a beautifully coordinated selection of printed fabrics. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. Measurements are 82" x 96": Pennsylvania origin. Made 1870's.
