Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in Virginia
66 x 75 Inches
This quilt maker chose the Clam Shell or Baptist Fan quilting design.
But this maker went way beyond the usual, and set the quilted arcs only 1/4 apart.
So the entire surface of the quilt is covered with very dense hand quilting,
executed at about 7 stitches per inch (counting one side only),
This design, called "Carolina Lily," and is a loved traditional one.
Well made and in Excellent Condition:
Strong, sturdy, and clean.
Flat and lightweight with wool batting.
All cottons and separately bound.
