Nine Patch Quilt ; Circa 1880; Pennsylvania
Indigo and white Nine Patch quilt with an unusual variation of a zig zag border. One of the Nine Patch blocks reverses the navy and white squares. Legend has it that this is an intentional mistake, or humility patch, for only God is perfect. In actuality, I know of no documentation that such blocks existed; they were likely simply human error. Excellent condition; circa 1880. Measures 70" x 86"; Pennsylvania origin.
