It seems as though this quilt pattern would have a romantic or imaginative name other than the obvious X but I have been unable to locate one. In any case, it is remarkable how such a simple pattern can form several combinations and with the appearance of so much depth. Rich colored calico prints are terrifically offset by the solid white. Pristine, professionally laundered condition. Circa 1870; Pennsylvania origin. Measures 78" x 88".
