This unusual version of a Joseph's Coat quilt pattern has an especially "painterly" quality. Traditionally, one group of the seven colors makes up the entire quilt. This scaled down rendition may be unique. It is from Pennsylvania; circa 1880. The red blocks are quilted with one inch squares. Quilting in the primary blocks follows the outlines of the stripes. Measurements are 72 inches square. There is slight fading to one corner of the backing but the front is in flawless condition.
