In this meticulous, fine antique, the background fabric is white with a blue figure, and the colored fabrics are various reds. The impeccable piecing and clamshell quilting make this an outstanding quilt, one of the best Michigan quilt in Mary's collection.

By Gwen Marston and Joe Cunningham from Mary Schafer and Her Quilts.
