Quilted whole-cloth chintz bed cover with a yellow background and stripes of tan and brown flowers with blue and brown scrolls. Quilted in diagonal squares. Lined with tan homespun. Corners are cut out at foot for bedposts.
This roller-print chintz has a mustard-yellow ground with a floral pattern in browns, blue, and green produced by over-printing. A large diamond forms the quilting design.
