Description: A hand-sewn pieced quilt. The decorated side consists of alternate blocks on a diagonal of printed cotton in light blue and white. On the white blocks are arranged triangular and square pieces of dark blue printed cotton to form a design called 'Hole in the Barn Door'. The quilt is backed with plain cotton. History: This quilt is an example of a pieced or patchwork quilt. The Hole in the Barn Door pattern was especially popular in the 1870-1900 era. Itsí name comes from the small framed window cut into barn doors.
