After considerable searching, I discovered that the name of this unusual quilt pattern is Full Moon. It combines the great positive/negative qualities of the Mill Wheel pattern with additional, larger circles. The bold zig zag border is a wonderful counterpoint to the round shapes of the body of the quilt. Professionally laundered; pristine condition. Measures 72" x 76"; Pennsylvania origin. Circa 1870.
