This interesting version of a T pattern quilt creates an abstract design as well as the primary T. Some people believe the T pattern signifies temperance but I am not convinced. It is very well quilted and in spotless condition. Three of the borders are red with the fourth in tan likely indicating it should be for the head of the bed. Made circa 1880; Missouri origin. Measurements are 60" x 74".
