This velvet Tumbling Blocks quilt is as lush and sensuous as a sable coat - but more politically correct. Rich, dense colors combined with the depth of the fabric make this an exceptional example of an always desirable pattern. Wonderfully three dimensional. Tied on the back which is cafe au lait colored cotton sateen that also forms the binding. Albany, New York origin. Measures 67" x 78"; circa 1880.
