To the best of my knowledge, this Center Medallion Floral Wreath quilt is an original pattern. Clusters of tulips are in the very center and in the corners. The central wreath and vined border have a different flower and buds. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. Measurements are 80" x 90. Inked signatures on the back are Kezzie H. Nye (1834 - 1868) and C.L. Peck (1867- 1964). Carrie L. Peck was the daughter of Keziah Nye. Made circa 1860; Vermont origin.
