Description This is a whole-cloth linsey-woolsey quilt. The quilt has a unglazed brown top that was probably once the color green with a tan back. The outside edge of the quilt has a feather motif while the middle has a stem and spiral motif. There are two stems that begin at the base of the quilt and then nine spirals branch off the stem. The spirals contain different motifs such as rosettes, leaves and grapes. This quilt was probably produced at home.
