This chintz quilt is a combination of Four Patch and triangles creating a dramatic diagonal overall light and dark pattern. It is in excellent, unwashed condition. It has a small darkened area that is very unobtrusive because of the multiple printed fabrics. There are no other condition flaws. The border is a glazed floral chintz not seen elsewhere in the quilt. The binding is a striped fabric attached in such a way as to look like it is pieced but in fact it is a single fabric. Measurements are 82" square; ex-Patricia Smith collection.
