One does not often find full size 19th century sampler quilts but those made in the 19th century are as scarce as hen's teeth. The nine blocks of this fine example are beautifully set off on a solid red ground. It is very well pieced. The border has a cable quilting pattern and double straight lines throughout the sashing. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. There is a spot about the size of a pea on one of the bars of the Joseph's Coat block but nothing else to mention. The backing is brick red and indigo calico Bars. The same indigo material is used for the binding. Measurements are 37 1/2 inches square. Lancaster County, Pennsylvania origin; made circa 1880.
