Beautifully crafted and thoughtfully planned Philadelphia Pavement quilt with postage stamp size pieces. Each square measures about 3/4". The condition is as crisp as the day it was made nearly 100 years ago. The colors blend perfectly together and the inclusion of a white row in each block makes it all even more fresh and crisp in appearance. The prairie point (folded triangles) border is a nice finishing edge.
Measurements are 85 inches square to the tips of the triangles...
This Amish Chinese Coins quilt was made by Mrs. John A. Yoder (Barbara) who was born in Aberdeen, Mississippi in 1885. In 1905 she moved to Oklahoma where this quilt was made about 1930. It was purchased in 1984 by David Pottinger, one of the early collectors and scholars about Amish quilts. Rarely does one have such specific information about the maker of an Amish quilt. In 1996 it was shown in the Fowler Museum of Cultural History.
