This Princess Feather quilt (aka Prince's Feather) is the ultimate in Pennsylvania Dutch decoration. Both the fabrics and applique make for a rich, full pattern. The wreath center is different, yet very reminiscent of the Princess Feather design. Similarly, the star centers are closely related. The zig zag border inside the leaves; flowers and grapes or berries adds to the intense decoration. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There is faint shadowing, more visible in some light than others, where the color rubbed off to the yellow ground. It is minimal at worst. The quilt measures 92 inches square. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; circa 1860's.
