The richly colored Princess Feather quilt is a color choice with this pattern seen several times only in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Variations exist in the center motifs but the four block Princess Feather on a rich blue ground with red and orange is a combination found only in Lancaster. This quilt has an especially nice continuation of the appliqued feathers throughout the border. It is well quilted with a waffle design throughout the body. There is a sliver of color loss on one edge. The backing is a beautiful paisley print. Upon close examination, one can see some deterioration on the backing fabric. Measurements are 83" square. Made circa 1880.
