Unidentified Quilt Maker
78 x 100 inches
Found in Ohio
Superb Hand Quilting
"Carolina Lily" is a classic design which required primarily piecing,
as well as a bit of applique.
Assuming the same quilt maker also did the quilting, this was one versatile, experienced, and tremendously skilled needlewoman.
The stylized lyres in the alternate block are truly elegant, creating a graceful counterpoint to the angular "Lillies."
The quilt is in excellent condition, with no holes, tears, or fading. Appears unwashed.
