This is the most complex Carolina Lily quilt that I have ever seen. The arrangement of the densely packed Lilies creates several additional patterns. The quilt is in excellent, unwashed condition. It is made with a beautiful grouping of mid 19th century printed red fabrics. The use of the Oakleaf border is an interesting choice. It is as bold as the body of the quilt. Measurements are 84" x 90". Maine origin; circa 1860.
