Nine block album quilt with wreaths and pots of flowers, no two of which are the same. The pots of flowers in the corners facing inward give a nice symmetry to the overall design. It is clearly a rural version of a Baltimore Album quilt. The quilt has been professionally laundered and is in excellent condition. It is well quilted with feathered vines along the grid and border. The applique border flowers are an effective continuation of the shapes of the flowers within the quilt. Maryland origin; circa 1860. Measurements are 76" x 80".
