The quilt topper itself is made up of a hand sewn top and a purple backing. The quilt also has twelve prairie flowers on the white background and a purple sheet for the backing. The two are separate. The quilt has a purple patch missing from the front and is held together with a safety pin. It has a couple stains on the boarder along with orange stains on the white part. The edges are very worn and are fraying. b. A large piece of purple fabric that goes along with the quilt. The ends are faded and frayed.
