Of all the several hundred quilts posted on this site, no other has the unusual marigold printed ground of this Double Nine Patch. It has the warmth of a sunny day. Contrasting with the ground fabric are the small brown Double Nine Patches. They are all set on a solid ground with the exception of the center block that is set on blue polka dots. The border is is a printed pink fabric not used elsewhere in the quilt. The placement of the small Nine Patch blocks gives the effect of vertical and horizontal chains.
The quilt is in excellent, probably never washed condition. Measurements are 72 inches square. Pennsylvania origin; made 1870's.
