This Classic Baltimore album quilt has all of the fine needlework that one expects to find in this most prized category of 19th century quilts. It is beautifully quilted with tiny stitches and graceful patterns that wraparound the appliqued blocks. The blocks are done with a combination of applique; reverse applique; embroidery and padded applique making for three dimensional blocks. The vine and flowers border beautifully carries through the applique in the body of the quilt. The quilt has the following three signatures: Elizabeth L.(?) Sterrett; Belinda Robins and Alexina Harrison. The quilt has been professionally laundered. The front is spotless with some staining on the back that does not show through on the front. Measurements are 94" x 96".
