Mennonite Hired Hands Quilt - Circa 1910 - Waterloo County

Hired Hands Quilt in excellent original condition.  This quilt has a unique assembly of men's wool suiting fabrics composed in an asymmetrical pattern.  Borders of long stripes of fabric, with little thought to a cohesive arrangement, are worked throughout the outer framing of the central pattern.  The centre pattern is a trip-around-the-world variation.  

Size:  73" x 63".  Fabrics:  Wool with grey wool flannel cotton backing.  The even diagonal quilting throughout the full extension of the quilt adds to the finishing touch.
