AMISH FOUR COLOR BARS ANTIQUE QUILT, cotton
You have to touch this one as well as look at it to get the full impact, as this quilt is composed of fine silken glazed cottons rather than wool or crepe. So crisp it was likely never used. The four colors used in both large and small portions are red, green brown and blue. As a 'floating' composition with no corner blocks (where there would traditionally be a fifth color used) this design solution makes it a distinctive choice among the known Amish quilts.
