Notes: "From the whole cloth quilt and an idea from the Lancaster kit, there developed-most likely in Ohio-an elegant design unique to the Midwestern Amish: a whole cloth quilt with a thin single or double inner border in a contrasting color [as seen in the present example]...While the basic design appears to be an early Lancaster Center Square quilt pulled into a rectangle, it differs from most of those in that the wide outer border, defined in these quilts by the narrow inner border, is of the same color as the inner field; in the Lancaster quilt, the wide outer border would normally be of a different color." (Holstein, "The Aesthetics of Amish Quilts," 98-99)
