1850 - 1875 Pieced Quilt

Description
Plain-weave roller-printed cottons, mainly geometrics, plaids, and stripes were effectively assembled to construct this quilt. Pieced blocks, 8 1/2-inch square, are crossed diagonally by a band of pieced small triangles to create an overall interesting geometric effect.
