FeaturesF053
Contemporary Chinese patchwork quilt, two sided. One side has 25 blocks of different sizes and techniques. Several are elaborately embroidered with designs of dragons and animals on blue cotton ground, others are made with brightly colored solid fabrics in utility blocks, and four blocks feature a round design with appliqued scenes of animals, with a sawtooth border. The other side has 81 multi-colorful blocks, pieced in a string style, and the center of each block has a 3-dimensional insect or amphibian, surrounded by embroidery. Both sides has a dark blue border.
