This Baskets of Flowers quilt could not be more bold and straightforward. It is well pieced; appliqued and quilted. Using the same colors for the details of the Baskets as well as the flowers pulls it all together. At first glance, it appears that the red and green flowers on the left of each basket are done with reverse applique. Closer examination, though, shows that the green was actually stitched on top of the red. The piece is very well quilted with a wreath in each off block and cable patterning in the border. The quilt is in as immaculate condition as the day it was made some 120 years ago. It was clearly packed away as it has never been washed. Measurements are 81 inches square.
