Tree of Life quilt, made by Mary Minor Simms Lester sometime between 1800 and 1849. It appears that this could be Broderie Perse in the center, instead of a printed panel. It is surrounded by hand applique semi-circles cut from two different fabrics. It is then bordered by LeMoyne stars, sashing, and a striped border print. It is a treasure trove of fabrics! It measures 86" x 90".
