Description

This design features a central compass and small squares that form diamond shapes around it. The color palette includes Civil War reproduction fabrics in reds, blues, whites, and off-whites. The backing is a light blue, floral print.

Measurements:

King (114″ W x 120″ L)

A regular king mattress is 76″ wide and 80″ long, therefore this quilt would have a 19″ drop on each side.

A California king mattress is 72″ wide and 84″ long, therefore this quilt would have a 21″ drop on each side.

All quilts are long enough to allow for a significant drop at the foot of the bed as well as a nice pillow tuck so there is no need for shams.

About This Pattern:

Specific to Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, this pattern is also known as Trip Around the World to the Mennonite community, and Sunshine & Shadows to the Amish community. It is made by sewing together thousands of tiny squares in rows of contrasting colors to form diamond shapes. In the center is the Mariner’s Compass, a shape that was inspired by the compasses on antique maps.

Made by Mennonite quilter, Mabel
