X Marks The Spot (Reversible)

Dated:  "1899"
78 x 78 inches
Origin unknown; Found in Ohio
Excellent Condition

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is so much happening on the front of this unique (reversible) composition,
I have decided to simply nickname it The "X" Quilt.

Multiple borders surround the handsome center field, full of rectangles; each rectangle is embellished with a hand embroidered "X"
Borders follow:  Rectangles, Log Cabins, Crazy Quilt corners, and Roman Stripes. 

The front is inscribed with a name: "Jean Johnston" and a date: "1899."
Jean Johnston may have made the quilt, but without provenance, we simply don't know.  For example, sometimes a name on a quilt is that of the recipient of a quilt honoring or them, or otherwise signifying the owner.

There's a second cool quilt on the reverse!
The back of this tied quilt is another Central Medallion design, also graphic, and executed with in cottons, and with quite a different sets of colors.
~~~  Excellent Condition  ~~~
Ready to hang on a wall.  It looked great on mine!
