Do you like muted colours?   I do.  Greens and browns especially.   this quilt was purchased recently  from a Waterloo Co  collection and is perfect for a wall hanging, or draping behind a sofa or resting on the guest bed.   it is a small sized quilt, only 56x65 inches approx.  likely for a hiredman's small single bed,  made from homespun fabrics with a wool batten and quilted in a fan stitch.  it has a great deal of patches on the backside likely to stablilize the fabric as it is showing sign of wear due to age and washing no doubt.   I would date the quilt to the Mid 1800's.     not many of this age on the market these days.
