What young girl wouldn't have sweet dreams sleeping under this charming quilt? The center is what I believe to be a gingerbread man surrounded by a puppy, chicks, an elephant, a kitten and some indeterminate animals. All have embroidered faces. It is well quilted with a variety of patterns. The center is crosshatched with cables in two borders and flowers in the corners. The outer border is quilted with overlapping circles. There are two very tiny (smaller than a pea) spots next to the central figure. Everything else is in virtually perfect condition. Measurements are 64" x 80". Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920.
