English Summer Coverlet c. 1820-25

It's amazing what you find when you start trawling the auction archives - this beautiful unquilted patchwork coverlet for instance!  It's such a hotchpotch of a design and would perhaps benefit from a few quiet areas? 

It's a shame that this picture of the centre is a bit out of focus, but isn't it wonderful?

As usual there is absolutely no provenance so we don't know where it was made or who made it, but it doesn't look as if it has been used.  I wonder where it is now?  Some lucky person owns a treasure!
