Antique Quilt

About

Antique pieced quilt. "Mosaic". Combination of cotton and wool challis fabrics, both of which were used for dress materials. The quilt maker has artfully arranged the colors to form an overall design. The quilt is small and is a great size for hanging, or for a throw or the foot of a bed. The colors are bright and bold. The quilt is from the northeast, either New England, New York State or Pennsylvania. It was made circa 1875.
