I often think about how many utilitarian quilts we will never see, as they are were used up (as intended). This one is nearly there. It's faded and many of the fabrics are worn out. The borders are frayed.
I bought this quilt on a road trip through the Midwest a few years ago - somewhere in Indiana, I believe. I think I would pass it up today but I am not sorry I have it. I consider this quilt to be a pattern, a design that would work nicely if it was reproduced.
The squares in the nine-patch blocks measure 3/4" finished. There are10 rows of nine-patches on point. It is hand pieced and hand quilted. The quilt measures 30" x 41".
My favorite part of this quilt is the little string of blocks in the top and bottom borders.
