The simple One Patch pattern is made extraordinarily rich and sparkly by the use of a multitude of glorious fabrics of the 1860's and 70's. All are fine wool challis. Lightweight; quilted but no batting. Each block measures 1 1/2" square. Tremendous use of lights and darks; printed and solid fabrics. Back is somewhat fragile and has had several mends; front is in excellent condition. Measures 85" square; Pennsylvania origin.
