A crib or cradle quilt measuring 41" by 31". The squares alternate: either a white border with a floral patterned fabric in center or a floral patterned border with applique on white square in center. This is a variation of the "Log Cabin" design. The border is chintz with a poppy floral pattern and the backing is a white cotton, edged with braid. It is quilted overall in a geometric design. The quilt was made, in Charleston, by Mary Louisa Schirmer, who was the donor's step-mother. The quilt was donated by Robert S. Tiedeman in June of 1948.
