This quilt measures 21" long and 17" wide. Made with primitive looking civil war fabrics it is sure to look beautiful in your home. Nice size for a table or cabinet top. This is from a pattern by Kathleen Tracy, love her little designs! This has been machine pieced and quilted with the finishing of the binding done by hand. Don't you love the two color binding?
