One is a dark brown block print from circa 1790 and another 18th century block print with spindly floral vines on white. The back is a later circa 1840 print with a gray-blue/beige leafy design. The quilt is in good condition, with some brown dye loss in the early block print on the front and wear consistent with age and usage. Circa 1840, American.
