I believe this to be a unique combination of the patterns Birds in the Air and Straight Furrows. Wonderful arrangement of lights and darks makes this country quilt very dramatic. Pristine, unwashed condition. Lebanon County, Pennsylvania origin. Measures 76" x 80". Totally reversible to Bars back on which the quilting, particularly the cable pattern throughout the border, shows even better than on the front. Circa 1890.
