The main ground of this quilt is dark blue calico pieced into feathered stars. The voids in between the stars are of white cotton fabric that has been appliquéd with a variety of flowers that have been cut from chintzes. The edging is of a second dark blue calico. The piece is decorated with very fine quilting in various grid and arc patterns and is completely hand stitched.
