There is a zipper and hook and eye at the center. The quilt pieces were sewn together on a treadle machine. Could be worn as a skirt.
The quilt pieces are backed in wonderful early cottons of various colors, some lovely browns and reds. I collect early quilts and never saw anything this lovely.
It is a real treasure for those of us that value early textiles.
