A rare Amish quilt from the 40's - an Amish Bars and Applique quilt. Reversible, you can use either side.This quilt is from the Lancaster County Amish, or Big Valley, PA Amish. The size is 90" by 76". I found a couple of snags (pictured) and a paint spot where they left it on the bed when painting the room and it didn't come out in a hand wash. I made no further attempt to clean it. The applique work is all hand done and the quilting is all hand done at approximately 8 stitches per inch. I see a couple of areas where the quilting has pulled out as shown. Rare to find an Amish quilt, yet more rare one that's a reversible bars quilt.
