The top of this quilt is pieced of dark green, dark red, and cadet-blue wool. The backing is a navy-blue cotton shot through at random with colored threads. All the stitching, aside from the quilting, was done on a sewing machine. The center diamond is quilted with a seven-pointed star, which is enclosed by two feather wreaths. The narrow red inner borders are quilted with pumpkin-seed flowers, while the wide outer border is feather quilted.
