91106 Sm Water Lily Patchwork (Laura Wheeler design) Peach, green, gold 895.00
76" x 90" 1930s, probably Indiana; maker unknown. Nine inch blocks, 17 pieces in each and all curved pieces, adding to the difficulty of execution; the blocks feature a repeating poppy or water lily in plain peach with pale gold center and three plain green leaves. The blocks are hand pieced and set on point, block to block to the edge of the quilt, which is bound in a second gold bias over a white back. Entirely by hand; nicely hand quilted in outline around each of the segments in each block. Excellent condition; unused and unwashed. Sleeved for hanging.
