I have these two coverlets. I assume they are linsey-woolsey. The first has the dividing line where it was joined. The second is practically Op-Art!

Can anyone tell me more. I think they are Kentucky pieces as they've been in my family for a while.

    Beautiful. Almost psychedelic. Especially the one on the right.

    From the looks of it, you have two coverlets from Kentucky Coverlet Industries. Check out this site and you might be able to identify your weaver and the name of the motif.

    Beautiful! Some similar, and not so similar, examples may be found in our museum collection in Oregon: http://www.bentoncountymuseum.org/exhibitions/coverlets/
