Modeled after several antique quilts of
this style, this Pride of Iowa or Pot of Flowers pattern is traced to
the mid 1800s. Each one Marianne studied had a central four block motif
including vase. Some had birds on the branches within the vase, others
didn't. She found in her research that each quilter used her own
border motif. Marianne's features her own unique border design, putting
our own "stamp" on this wonderful vintage design. This is ours
exclusively. Design is copyrighted and may not be used for commercial
production. Classically Home Vintage Renditions is a trademark of
Marianne Elizabeth. 84" x 84".
You'll love the full size images and the fact that you will receive mirror images so you have no "reversing" to do.
