FARMER'S PUZZLE ANTIQUE QUILT red prints and ivory
A never-before-seen pattern for me, in untouched right out of storage condition. This rarely seen, more geometric pattern with arrow and diagonal elements is framed within a more classic swaq and tassel applique border - a decisive contrasting touch that adds a more period curvalinear element and reflects the artistic mind of the quilt maker. Contains two different early prints that I have yet to research to establish a firmer age. Its great age patina corresponds the tone of the prints with the soft cream background such that I recommend leaving it in this original condition.
