This is a beautiful quilt, intended for use, I think, as a bedspread. It is light, and it had no heavy quilting fabric. It measures 71 inches wide, and 79 inches long. It is a standard bed size, but if one wants it to hang down to the floor, it would probably need to be used on a single or three quarters sized bed. The quilt consists of 20 applique tulips. I am not sure of the date of the quilt, but I am guessing 20's or 30's. It is in very good condition. There is some wear, but no tears or stains to speak of. This would be so nice on an iron bed , or any antique or antique style bed. The colors in the photos are very good; there is teal, green, brown, and pink, and dark pink. The backing is teal and white.
