This is an exceptional Redwork quilt that has so much detail and so many blocks of a great variety. It is like a storybook maybe that depicts the life of the quiltmaker.

The condition of the quilt is excellent and it is all hand quilted at 6 spi.

Some of the blocks include cats, dogs, children playing, a wishing well, the sun, cup and saucer, wash board, sissors, thread and needle, a cooked turkey, an anvil, toad under the mushroom, chicks hatching and much more. For the binding the backing was brought forward and stitched down by hand. Woodstock, New York area.
