An appliquéd sawtooth-edged cotton quilt with four center panels of oak leaf and vine appliqué in a green print. Miscellaneous fruits and flowers are arranged at the base of each vine extending into the extension. This same floral vine edges both sides. The cutout corners fit a four-poster bed. From the 1870s.
