Variation of a Carolina Lily quilt that is also close to the pattern known as Potted Star Flower. Beautiful shades of chocolate brown and teal blue/green. Professionally laundered; excellent condition. Small blue spots on thumbnail photos are not stains; they are clumps of blue thread within the batting. Nicely quilted with clamshell patterns and diagonal lines. Inexplicably, part of one block is also quilted with overlapping circles. Both the colors and the fact that some colors are quilted with dark thread lead me to believe this quilt is Southern in origin. Circa 1880; measures 72" x 90.
