    I picked this up at an estate sale earlier this year before everything hit the fan. I will make a second post with more photos. I haven't measured it, or if I did I forgot! It's in amazing condition, though it could use a cleaning, I am not sure how to do it since it's all wool, and old wool at that.
    Even though it's not quite as elaborate as some, I absolutely love it!

      It is a beautiful piece. There are many websites about cleaning old quilts out there.

      This is SO gorgeous! I love the overall style. The colors are great. I like the crazy border too. mcheconi is right - check the internet. Also museums. Do you know anything about the provenance? A good airing out on the lawn or a picnic table might help. Don't let it get wet though - I'm sure you know all this.
