The Mennonite ladies used this fabric so much is has come to be called "Mennonite red" by quilters and collectors. This quilt is in excellent original condition with no repairs or apparent issues; it is clean and ready to use on your bed. It is 100% cotton and washable. It is rather thick, a winter quilt, but quilted nevertheless, at 6-7 stitches per inch, and hand-pieced as well. It measures 74" X 82" and will fit a full sized bed.
