The batting is wool. The binding is the backing folded to the front with mitered corners. The quilt is tied with pink wool yarn. The backing is machine pieced tan cotton and linen fabric. The fabrics were from garments owned by Eugenia Mitchell's mother and sisters. The backing is said to be nun's veiling from Scotland. The quilt was used for 30 winters and was never washed.
