"The design for this Quilt of Ships is as unique in its “set” plan as it is in the general idea. You see it is not just alternate blocks in checkerboard fashion, but strips of ships, single ships and border lines of ships all artistically embroidered and brought together with quilted squares for contrast. Then in the centre is a gorgeous panel, appliqued if you please, in natural colors, of the most breathtakingly beautiful sight a seaman ever beholds —the full rigged Clipper Ship!

"There’s a row of our ancestral ships across the top—one from each of the great nations of that day when the New World was discovered. Special Ships in our history are sketched to mark the eras of progress, the Santa Maria, Old Ironsides, Fulton’s Cleremont, etc., and types of craft that tell the story, too, the Indian canoe, trapper raft, tow boats on early canals, river packets and the multiplicity of harbor boats today. Our fighting marine has a section, you’ll find a lightship, lifeboat and even a gorgeous show boat, each telling its own chapter for the whole story of American Ships."
