This brightly colored, dynamic quilt is ca. 1890-1920. It has never been used. Its only issue is some slight fading on two of the blocks (shown in the photographs). The bright red and cheddar yellow grid set off its multicolored calico and shirting squares to excellent advantage. The pattern is on a scale suited to the larger size of this quilt (76" X 94"). This design is called "Ducks and Ducklings." The quilt is meticulously machine-pieced with all corners lining up exactly. The quilting is by hand. The binding and backing are unbleached muslin. This quilt is a winter quilt with some weight to it. There was no central heating in the early twentieth century; quilts such as this one kept one warm during the cold weather. This quilt was found in the Chicago suburbs but has a Pennsylvania look. It may be washed in a large washing machine and dried in a dryer, or it may be professionally cleaned. It is clean and ready to use. It is hard to find a 100 year old quilt sturdy enough to be used on a bed. Here is one.
