The streamlined pieced pattern of this Straight Furrows quilt provides the perfect showcase for its exquisite quilting. The diagonal white rows alternate between feather patterns and grapes with leaves and tendrils. The printed fabric is more blue than appears on my monitor. Measurements are 83" x 91". Made circa 1850; Pennsylvania origin. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition.
