Antique Quilt, "Robbing-Peter-to-Pay-Paul"


Skilfully pieced and elaborately quilted, a superb example of a very difficult design to execute. A less ambitious quilter might have been content to create all of those perfect, never-ending circles in the main body of the quilt. However, an inspired, diamond-studded border, echoing the "borrowing" theme, is an amusing and impressive addition, right down to the four corners.
