Diamond in squares doll quilt (aka economy patch) with both funkiness and great attention to detail. The border around the diamonds in squares alternates between the green calico and brown printed fabrics. Surely this is an indication of the care with which the maker created this small quilt. At the same time, the backing consists of a central calico bar set at an angle between two sections of brown wool. Intentional or careless? Who knows? It is nicely hand quilted. Wool and cotton fabrics...
