Completely pieced of squares each under 2" in size, orchestrated according to color to create the dramatic concentric rectangles design. Subtle small 'ties' hold the top, batting and backing together, hardly visible until you step up close. Great long distance impact from what is essentially a utilitarian composition, using up wool suiting and clothing scraps in symmetrical sized squares. Squares of solid color better quality wools used in clothing are arranged by color to form concentric rectangles. So refreshing to see that the maker of this utilitarian quilt took some time to figure out a dramatic and effective color arrangement, rather than simply putting the cloth squares together at random as most wool quilts of this era appear to be. The result is a squared off Target resembling contemporary 20th century color field paintings instead of a pieced country quilt. Possibly Amish, the bold centered medallion design is a familiar simple graphic, with this one made more interesting by the fact that all the panels of color in the concentric frames are pieced of smaller squares. Tacked with two colors of cotton thread, not quilted.
