This patchwork features approximately 2” square nine-patch black and white blocks throughout. They alternate with a sophisticated geometric design of burgundy, green, navy and orange colors: complementary colors that highlight each other. The green border with a pink zigzag indicates this was probably made by a Hindu woman as green and pink are favorite colors of this group. The back is solid, bright green. The yarn tassels on the corners indicate this was made for a special purpose or gift.
