At first glance, some would think this is a Hawaiian quilt - not so. It is similar to Hawaiian in that it has the solid color central applique design but there the similarity ends. This quilt has pairs of lovebirds; stars and swags, not seen on quilts of the islands. True, the leaf designs have similarity. This quilt measures 78" x 80". It is quilted in diamond designs, unlike the echo quilting of Hawaiian pieces. The binding is machine stitched. Condition is excellent. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1880.
