This Philadelphia Pavement variation is bold and strong in every way. Unwashed condition. A small white spot on one of the blue blocks is part of the paper label from the bolt of fabric, further indication that the quilt has never been laundered. Terrific grouping of fabrics typical of southeastern Pennsylvania quilts of the late 19th century. Equally striking on the reverse Open Center pattern done in a different palette. Measures 80" square; circa 1880.
