Philadelphia Pavement 1900
ca 1900. 80x80. This is a twenty-five-patch of madder prints, shirtings, indigo prints and double pinks plus the red and white checked corner stones. There are horseshoes, paislies, woven plaids, checks and complex stripes. It is very graphic, yet it is fun to examine each different print in more detail. The backing is muslin, which comes to the front as the binding. The quilting, at about 8st/inch, is in square grids, small diamonds, parallel lines, contours and those interesting reverse arcs in the cornerstones. It has a hanging strip. The fabrics are all intact with great quality. However there is one stain on front and the back shows signs of water damage. Condition is fair.
