Each piece is surrounded by Turkey Track stitching in different colors of embroidery floss. Several pieces have florals, and one piece has a small silk American flag attached with French knots. Many of the pieces have the initials of the makers. The edges of the quilt have treadle sewing machine stitching, but there is no binding, and a few velvet pieces have damage. The size is 86″ by 80″.
