Pattern and size make this hired man's quilt most unusual. Very creative use solely of triangles to make a center medallion different from the outer frames. Fabrics date from mid through late 19th century. Summer weight (no batting). Measures 53" x 76", making it a very desirable size to hang either horizontally or vertically. Circa 1890.
