This is a finely made Tumbling Blocks Charm Quilt. In addition to the fact that no fabric is repeated, the maker took particular care with the binding, alternating strips of the same two fabrics used for the Bars pattern backing. It is in crisp, unwashed condition; nicely quilted and incorporating many unusual fabrics with animals. Measurements are 88" x 92".
