Pretty pastels, very nicely made and a difficult and delicate quilt pattern. This is a Silver Dollar or Lollipop quilt and it was probably made sometime in the 1940s. (It is one of two being offered; see my other listings for the companion piece.) Stitched from printed cotton calico fabric and squares were separated with natural color muslin fabric. Measures 65 inches x 90 inches. Very clean and was well cared for. The quilt Silver Dollar side can be reversed so the Lollipop side can be shown. As you might expect from a quilt of this type, it has to be handled carefully since a few pieces need to be tacked down, fabrics have gently faded on Silver Dollar side. Even so, it adds a refined touch of elegance and charm in a country or seaside cottage.
