- An appliqued red and green wedding quilted bedcover made by Lydia Hardiman for her daughter Lucy Hardiman Roundtree. Four (4) repeating blocks depicting stylized pineapple fruits in red striped and solid green cotton on a white ground are separated by green sashing with red squares in the corners. The sashing also appears on two exterior edges of the top. The pineapple design consists of a leafy stem with three (3) large fruits extending from the stem. The blocks are not oriented in the same direction. The blocks are hand appliqued and hand pieced with white cotton thread. There is cotton batting between the top and the plain white cotton backing. The layers are hand quilted with white cotton thread that traces the appliqued fruit pattern and is sewn in a diagonally-oriented grid in the negative spaces. The edges of the quilt are turned and hand stitched to the back.
