From the late 19th century or early 1900's, a red calico whole cloth child's quilt, bedspread or possible a lap blanket.  Two pieces of calico fabric have been stitched together in five even rows, lengthwise, by treadle machine. 

Two colors of thread were used on the quilt, a white for the top stitching and a black bobbin thread for the quilt backing.  A nice attention to detail.    The front of the quilt is a red with white print.  The back is a red with black print. 

Width of the fabric to the center seam is 23-1/2" wide on either side.  The edges of the quilt have been turned and stitched.    No batting between the layers.

Overall size of the quilt is  47" wide x 49-1/2" long.  Condition is very nice with little use. 

Lovely as a table topper or other display in a country farmhouse setting.

Also, in another listing a blue and white calico whole cloth quilt.  Both quilts came from the same household.
