Delectable Mountains is often a bold, dynamic pattern but in this case, even more so than most. The fabric is a very, very dark blue/ green that in limited light looks black. The use of solid color fabric makes it even stronger. The quilt has a wonderful diamond border. It came from an estate in North Carolina but with no background information. The use of some dark quilting thread leads me to believe it is of Southern origin. Condition is excellent. Measurements are 78" x 86".
