There are 56 blocks, or eight rows of seven blocks, and each block has five circular appliquéd patches. All of the patches and blocks are outlined with red feather stitching. Each circle is tied with red thread, and none of the loose ends show on the front of the quilt. It is 72" x 81" and was made in the first half of the 20th century, my guess would be late 1930s or 1940s. I wasn't really looking for anymore wool quilts, but there it was, super bargain and unusual pattern. I couldn't resist!
