Yellow solid center with each rosette having 2 rings of prints, and separated by a green garden path. Many of the prints in the fabrics have been specialty cut to the center of the hexagon shape. It is hand pieced, but machine quilted in an overall loop de loop motif, similar to mattress pads from the time period. Yellow applied binding finishes the edges. Thin cotton batting and mint green solid backing.
