This quilt is made of cotton fabrics, some 19thc, including black on red prints, chintz, checks and bandana prints. It was found in Indiana, made no later than 1910. It is constructed of blocks with a red fabric in the center of each block, and that plus limiting the colors to red, black, blue and tan unifies the whole piece. The embroidery done with cotton threads is excellent but as can be seen in the last photo the maker apparently ran out of the heavier thread and stitched three blocks with ordinary thread. The backing is flannel; front and back are tied together and the batting is thick. Measurements are 78 by 70 inches.

A charming version of Flower Basket in red, yellow and green solid fabrics with pink calico binding. The quilt measures 72 by 68 inches and was found in southern Indiana. It was made circa 1900 and has a charming oops - the triangles making up one basket were sewn in the wrong direction. This design has two rows of baskets facing eachother so they would look upright from the foot of the bed or if one were lying in bed. All hand sewn of cotton fabrics, in very good condition with no fraying or tears but a few spots where the color was bleached out and some tiny rusty spots.
