This beautiful Sawtooth quilt also goes by the name of Birds in the Air. A large triangle is surrounded by smaller ones in a well combined group of three printed fabrics. The light yellow contrasting with the stronger red gives the fluttering appearance of birds in flight. The quilt is in outstanding, unwashed condition. The white triangles are quilted with half wreaths and leaves. It is very finely pieced with a tiny binding of the back turned over to the front. Measurements are 90" x 92". Berks County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860.
