This quilt is in the “Chimney Sweep” or “Album Patch” pattern. Each block uses nine turkey red print patches with four patches of a contrasting print. All are outlined by muslin triangles. The blocks are set with turkey red sashing and white corner stones. Included are a wonderful yellow print, chrome orange, blue, and printed gingham. This block is typically seen in the third quarter of the 19th century.
