Groups of four Pinwheel blocks are set together to create a dense pattern with lots of movement. Browns, greens and teals together make for an especially rich palette. Machine quilted. Several water marks visible on border and one in lowest of middle group of Pinwheels. Fabrics are strong and could probably be washed but I have not touched it. Backing is pieced bars. Measures 78" x 86". Franklin County, Pennsylvania Quilt Documentation project label is shown on thumbnail photo. Circa 1870.
