This Baskets Quilt has so much going on that it is difficult to know how to name it. An appliqued flower comes out of each basket. It has a triple diagonal sashing intersecting with Nine Patch blocks. Repeated use of the green calico on the base of the baskets; handles and flower stems makes a nice balance to the strong use of solid red. Stems of the flowers are finely embroidered. The quilt is in pristine, unwashed condition. It measures 88 inches square. It is nicely quilted with pinwheel patterns along the edges and both geometric and leaf-like patterns in the body. Ohio origin; circa 1880.
