While the pieced pattern of this Latticework quilt is a simple one, the quilting is anything but. Each open diamond provides a canvas on which this quilt artist plied her needle. There is a variety of very graceful floral patterns, many of which are not repeated. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in pristine condition. Faint evidence remains of the pencil lines to mark the quilting outlines. Measurements are 86" x 106". The red with blue print grid coordinates perfectly with the red print on the blue chintz border. Found in Virginia; made circa 1860.
