This exuberant quilt top is a completely original pattern. It combines a center medallion surrounded by a pot of flowers from which emanates an interwoven vine. The flower pot theme is carried out in the corner blocks. Stars and moons add to the whimsical quality. It was made in Pennsylvania in the 1870's. Formerly in the collection of the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. The quilt top is professionally mounted on a hinged stretcher for ease of transportation. The stretcher measures 73 1/2" x 86". Condition is excellent.
