Alphabet quilts are rare and in this eye popping color scheme, even more so. A white pattern on a colored ground is the reverse of what one would usually find in any quilt pattern. The stars used for corner blocks add additional "pop". The quilt measures 68" x 80". It is quilted with concentric circles over each letter and straight lines between. Excellent condition. Franklin County, Pennsylvania origin.
