Quilt, Strip pattern


Not on view

This quilt's top is composed of thirteen long strips of six different English block- and roller-printed fabrics stitched together in a symmetrical arrangement from the center strip. It is quilted overall in double-diamond pattern except for the double swag quilting in the border. The corners were notched at bottom, probably after the piece was completed. The hacking is of a coarsely woven white cotton, and the batting is of carded cotton.
