Collection of Eleanor Bingham Miller L2010.42.27

This quilt bears the initials "C.S.", presumably those of its maker. Did she depict the flowers in her household garden? Perhaps, since she shows us a wide variety of flowers rather than the single, stylized flower used for many appliquéd floral quilts of the period.
