25- PATCH DIAMOND ANTIQUE QUILT, handsome early fabrics
The variety of deep toned early printed cottons is a fabric lover's delight. The handsome palette is in a strong graphic pattern of pieced blocks on point within a diamond lattice grid. Though in crisp condition- never used and never washed (the fabrics retain their original finish) in some blocks the earliest fabric is starting to crack from environmental conditions, not use. This does not affect the appearance but suggests careful handling.
