This homespun wool quilt is as "arty" as it is early. It is made of a combination of homespun wools that date to the first quarter of the 19th century. The combination of plaids and checks next to the solid coral and red makes a very eye catching pairing. The back is made of the same fabrics set in irregular rectangles. It has very basic quilting in a herringbone pattern. Condition is excellent with slight wear to several inches of the binding. Measurements are 66" x 82". Connecticut origin; circa 1820's.
