Antique c1900s Square in a Square quilt measuring 70″ x 70″. Comprised of 49 squares 6.5″ x 6.5″, set straight 7 x 7, with 2.5″ orange print sashing and 5.25″ orange print borders. It is hand and machine pieced and hand quilted. Thin cotton batting and a red chambray reverse. The edge is finished with the back brought to the front and applied by hand. Nice variety of shirtings, I believe the pink was once a bright red, possibly Congo red and the sashing is an interesting color way for this print, which is typically seen in green. It is in good condition with several large spots and areas of fading.
