This Indigo and white Carpenter's Square quilt is a terrific version of a very three dimensional pattern. While there are actually only four of the carpenter's square blocks, their overlapping placement makes it appear as though there are more. The quilting in a pattern of squares on point furthers the overall theme.The edges of the carpenter's squares seem to meld into the five borders. Measurements are 76" square; circa 1880. Excellent condition.
