This wonderful version of a Thousand Pyramids quilt creates a pattern within a pattern. Fabrics were carefully chosen to create light blocks within the overall design. Solid and printed fabrics were well combined in the overall effect. Outstanding condition - the quilt is as fresh as the day it was made in the 1880's. Measurements are 86" x 90"; Pennsylvania origin.
