The top of this white cotton quilt is of a tightly woven white cotton. There are two layers of backing, a very coarsely woven layer and a less coarse show layer. The edge is bound with cotton twill tape. The piece is patterned with a central basket of flowers surrounded by four different ornate borders. The quilting is extremely fine; the patterned areas have been stuffed for stronger definition.
