This embroidered red and white quilt was found in Southern Michigan and probably originated in the Midwest. The red dye used is modern, so the quilt dates after 1900. It is in excellent, original, never-washed condition with the pencil guide-lines for the quilting still visible along the border. The collection of figural embroideries were traced from pictures found in children's books of the day. They include dogs, an elephant, "Jumbo," Sunbonnet Sue, fruit, a rabbit, etc. One block, that of a cherub, has been inserted upside down (shown in the photographs); the reason for this was to show the maker's humbleness. The quilt measures 68" X 78" and will fit a twin sized bed. It may be machine washed in cold water and dried in the dryer.
