This Hourglass crib quilt can be seen as several different patterns. There is the diagonal design in which the indigo triangles make up the bow tie. Alternatively, the primary pattern can be seen as the indigo Four Patch with the light triangles making up the Hourglasses. The binding is the back turned over to the front. While every indication is that it has been this way for many years, it is odd that on one edge, pieces of each block seem to be cut off. This is visible in thumbnail photos. Measurements are 29" x 38". Condition is excellent. There are two different indigo prints. The light fabric is the same throughout.
