A traditional Double T pattern quilt becomes more elaborate by the addition of triangles, making it more like a variation of Delectable Mountains. Very nicely quilted with wreaths in each of the white blocks. Professionally laundered; pristine condition. Lovely paisley type red printed fabric throughout. Measures 78" x 80"; circa 1890. Chambersburg, Pennsylvania origin. Name tag of Dora V. Williams attached and the initials DVW are written in ink on the binding.
