Black Eagles Quilt

The bold contrast of the unusual black eagle forms meticulously sewn and juxtaposed against the vibrant yellow background make this quilt stand out when compared to other quilts with the same theme. A dynamic Pennsylvania German textile.

Appliqué, pieced, hand-stitched and quilted cotton. Mint condition
