Measurements are 80" square. Pennsylvania origin; circa 1920's.
This Pots of Flowers Quilt is unusual in that it is simultaneously fanciful and elegant. The blossoms are far larger than their container giving this otherwise elegant quilt a touch of whimsey.

Measurements are 84 inches square. Unwashed, excellent condition. Made circa 1920.
