Never before have I seen an album quilt in which the flowers and berries are done entirely with stuffed applique. Usually, at most, there is a smattering of three dimensional applique but in this unusual album, it is all done with padding making for a very robust pattern. The quilt is in excellent condition. It is all solid color fabrics. Use of the same berry or grape blocks in all four corners gives just the right amount of symmetry. All of the other blocks are either baskets or cornucopias. Measurements are 76" x 78"; Pennsylvania origin. Made circa 1870.
