The unusual Patriotic quilt is made entirely of printed bunting. By its very nature, the fabric is light and gauzy. The quilt is tied on the back. It measures 62 inches square. On the back the printed label is visible indicating that the fabric was patented in 1898. It also says "Made expressly for...." but I cannot decipher the name of the maker company. Condition is good but nor perfect. There are some water marks along two edges but the interior is without problems. The water marks do not detract from the dramatic effect of the patriotic red, white and blue.
