How graphically wonderful and exciting is this true Lancaster County Sunshine and Shadow quilt. The fabric used in creating this masterpiece dates from circa 1920 to circa 1945. We have cottons and wool crepes combined to make this quintessential Lancaster County quilt. Measuring 82 by 82 inches, with the small squares measuring 1-1/2 inches, the deep rich indigo blue corner squares measuring 12-1/4 inches. The binding is a typical 1 inch machine applied royal blue binding. The four borders measure 12-1/2 inches in a luscious teal. I believe there are 21 different colors used in the creation of the Sunshine and Shadows pattern. The backing is a luscious medium blue, different from anything on the front. All quilting, which is perfect, has been executed using black thread. This Amish quilt has been held in a private collection for decades, and is now ready for a new home. This mint condition quilt (there are one or two pencil point moth holes in one corner) is ready to be sent for your at home approval.
