Center Medallion Crib Quilt
Unidentified Quilt Maker
34 x 42 inches
Found in Ohio
Here the quilt maker used the simplest of patchwork elements ~ squares, rectangles and triangles ~ and arranged them into something all her own.
S/he created a center medallion, and built out from there, organizing the geometric shapes into an overall design we've not seen anywhere else.
Like many crib quilts, this one has seen plenty of washes. The white printed fabric has mellowed with age. There is one small section where the binding has begun to weaken (see photos).
All original, with a separately appliquéd binding of the same indigo print as within the quilt. Hand quilted, simply.
