From Laura’s website: The border alone is worth the price of admission, repeating generous filled baskets and a double swag with pendant tassels around all four sides of this monumental whitework early quilt. Wonderful center medallion with an urn-like form surrounded by a sinuous feathery vine to emphasize just one of the various focal points in this best of kind, remarkable composition.
