This wonderfully graphic Amish work of art measures 40" X 43," a perfect size for a wall hanging. It could also be used for a crib blanket; it is made of 100% cotton/polyester fabrics and is washable in the washing machine; it may be dried in the dryer as well. The deep, rich colors mixed with black in a design called "brickwork" are really eye-catching. Depending on which angle one is viewing the quilt, the pink rows go under the blue rows, or vice versa. The best Amish quilts create this optical illusion effect. This quilt was made in the Amish way; it is expertly machine-pieced (on a treadle machine, of course, since the Amish use no electricity) but features lovely hand-quilting in black thread. There are tabs sewn to the black back of the quilt so that it may be hung from a bar. This quilt is vintage but not antique; it is around 20-25 years old. It is of Mid-Western origin, possibly Shipshewana, Indiana, as the quilt is from a Chicago estate.
