Dramatic, unique Center Medallion Quilt done mostly in velvet with a smattering of wool and silk. Not finely quilted but the use of tan thread against the dark fabrics adds additional texture to the quilt. Backing is cotton. Nice combination of both regular and irregular blocks. Measures 74" x 80". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
