    Antique Striped Pennsylvania County Mennonite Farmhouse Quilt America C1930-40 

    An Antique Amish striped quilt in shades of blue and cream. Made in circa 1930-40 in Pennsylvania County America. It has a solid blue back and has been constructed with 6cm wide strips and quilted with interlocking circles and two floral designs. One strip is pieced in two colours, probably intentionally as not to make the quilt perfect. This is a tradition of the Amish and Mennonites as they believe “only god can make things perfect. These are known as Humility patches. There is some slight yellowing on plain blue side. The striped side is in beautiful condition.
