Q9260 Amish Optical Illusion Kaleidoscope Quilt
47 x 78 inches
HOlmes County, Ohio
What a happy, very graphic Amish quilt. Amish quilts are very graphic. However, this quilt goes a step beyond.
The pattern, which is an optical illusion, showing motion, has me picturing a very happy woman creating her quilt.
The rich colors of their clothing come together to create a wonderful piece of art either for a bed or a wall.
Take note: the youth size lends this art piece to be a perfect size needed for wall art.
The outer triple border measures approximately 9-3/4". Making up this border is an outer black border of approximately 6-3/8", a middle border of a rich medium blue measuring approximately 1-3/8", and an inner black border measuring approximately 1-3/8". The approximately 1/2" binding of the same rich medium blue finishes the quilt. There is outline quilting, shell quilting, rope design quilting, and straight line quilting. The backing is a wholecloth in a rich deep teal not used on the front. All fabrics are cotton.
Appearing to be in mint condition, one wonders if this quilt was just too special to be used.
