This ralli illustrates one of the most typical everyday quilts. The color scheme is based on the old, natural dyes colors even though chemical dyes are now used. The size of the fabric used in the piecing is typical for an everyday quilt. The geometric design is bold, especially when viewed from a distance. The stains are ones that are very often seen on rallis. The back is fabric over-dyed green.
