It is difficult to say if this lovely applique quilt was meant to depict a specific flower or simply a graceful, five petal generic blossom. The color is certainly cornflower blue but I do not know whether it is meant to be that flower. Regardless, it is made of beautiful soft tones that combine well together. Buds along the edge make a terrific border. It is well appliqued and quilted. Stems are embroidered. The quilt is made of a fine cotton sateen. It is in pristine, unwashed condition. Measurements are 64" x 80". Made circa 1920.
