Appliqued with various floral and abstract designs, the twenty-five blocks of this quilt are separated by red cotton sashing. The designs in the blocks are cut from fabrics primarily in shades of red and green. All the blocks are hand stitched and signed by different hands, some in ink, some in cross-stitch.
