This is one of the few quilts in the top 100 made by a man.  It was made by Carl Klenicke in 1900 as a wedding gift for his daughter.  Carl was a tailor and he most likely made the quilt from elegant dress fabric scraps from his shop.  It even includes fabric made from women's veils.  It is thought that the two horses in the center of the quilt represent Carl's home country, Germany.  It is also believed that many of the motifs in the quilt had special meaning to, Laura, Carl's daughter.  It is 72" x 60."
