SIXTEEN PATCH, DOUBLE NINE PATCH, BARS ANTIQUE PIECED QUILT


 
SIXTEEN PATCH, DOUBLE NINE PATCH, BARS ANTIQUE PIECED QUILT

 



What an intricate combination of patterns using simple geometric shapes of squares and rectangles, arranged as Sixteen Patch, Nine Patch, and Four Patch Bars, Each block is a Nine Patch, with that piecing in the center, and the corners are the Sixteen Patch elements. The majority of the blocks are each done in a different solid color; the repeats are only in the pale grey blocks. All together they make for a special and lively palette . Fine wool gabardine. Origin unknown, likely Ohio or Western PA, possibly Amish or Mennonite. I've not seen this piecing  arrangement before. There are a few moth dings around the edge but they do not affect its strength or durability.
