      83” x 83”  1850-1875, found in northern Indiana; maker unknown.  Nine 27” squares of white muslin, eight with matching designs and one with a medallion, used as the center block.   The matching blocks have triple lilies from a single stem, set in a chrome orange pot or base.  The lily figures have 4 points, and the side-branching pairs of stems have 2 leaves each.  The lily figures are solid red and the stems and leaves are solid dark green.  These 8 applique blocks are set around the outside with their vases at the outer borders and the flowers reaching toward the center medallion block, which has 8 curved pieces forming a hollow circle in green, from which stem 4 rose and bud figures in red with green leaves and bracts,  alternating with 4 oddly spikey florals in red.  The design field is framed by a thick continuous vine, appliqued after the top was assembled; this vine has widely spaced sets of red and leaf, and the vine curves into a circle in the corners.  Nicely hand appliqued and hand joined; good condition.
