This loom-woven bed cover has warps of both red and white cotton and a weft of white cotton. It was woven to imitate hand quilting. The central design is an eagle with outspread wings standing above the words E PLURIBLIS UNUM. Thirteen stars are visible above the eagle's head. The remaining ground is covered with floral and foliage borders.
