Hand pieced and hand quilted antique quilt purchased at a Texas antique shop.  Very heavily quilted throughout the quilt.  1/4"- 1/2" spacing between lines of quilting.  Made circa 1910 or older.  The date is sometimes determined by the fabrics in a quilt and some of the fabrics in this one could be from the late 1800's.   "Lancaster blue consists of a light-blue print over a dark-blue background. This color was popular on antique quilts from 1860 to 1880" according Melissa King in How to Tell if a Quilt Is Vintage or Antique (SF Gate).  In fair condition with just a few worn areas.  Maker unknown.
