The number and size of the pieces that compose this quilt are astounding. The center field is filled with tiny Nine-Patch pieced blocks surrounded by multiple borders and even smaller patches. The quilt contains maroon, navy, red, pink, and black dress prints popular in the last decade of the 19th century.
