HOUSE ANTIQUE QUILT reverse coloration white on red
   

 



A distinctive version of the classic This Old House pattern pieced quilt because they houses are white cotton set on a watermelon print background, rather than the reverse. Most quiltmakers would have saved the costly print to create the image, this maker lavished that wonderful color as the background, and created a repeat image that holds its own with the pop art compositions of the later 20th century. Crisp untouched condition.
