This quilt is almost perfect. There are a few flaws which show up only under close examination. There is a miniature 9 patch block and half of another one, and the sides are half of a diamond in a square. Created from the clothing fabrics of Amish children, with a few dark colors probably from adult clothing. Machine pieced, hand quilted, great graphics and colors. This is exactly how I found it, but I suspect it may have been made from an adult quilt. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
