This Interlocking Squares quilt is a pattern I have not seen before. It is rather remarkable that such a simple pattern can create such a three dimensional effect. The printed centers of the squares contrast well with the solid blue and white adding to the dimensionality. The squares are quilted with a curvilinear pattern that is an interesting contrast to the hard edges of the pieced pattern. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 78" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
