There are straight line and grid designs quilted throughout at an even 9-10 stitches to the inch. The back and hand stitched binding are aged white, and the batting is thin. You can see cotton seed residue inside when you hold the quilt up to the light. The VERY UNUSUAL, ELABORATE DESIGN and VIBRANT COLORS make this 19th century COLLECTOR'S QUILT in GREAT CONDITION stand out!
