Here is a very graphic quilt in the "tumbling blocks" pattern done in royal blue, white, and a somewhat faded Depression-era print. The "tumbling blocks" pattern is also a six-pointed star as well. One sees both patterns at once; this adds tension to the design. The design is framed by a wide border in two shades of blue. This quilt is in very good condition with the fading of the printed fabric its only issue. There are two of these available. I expect they were made for twin beds. Each quilt measures 70" X 82" (not quite full size). To use on a full sized bed, turn sideways. Use blue sheets and pillowcases to really create a contrast. The body of this quilt is beautifully pieced by hand, but the long seams were run on a sewing machine. The border is hand stitched. The feather chain quilting along the outer border is quite lovely. All quilting is by hand at 8-9 stitches per inch. This quilt is 100% cotton and is machine washable. It was made between 1930 and 1950. This quilt was part of a suburban Chicago estate.
