Antique Crib Quilt- Whig Rose and Birds

Just a very quick post to share a quilt that is sure to give you a smile.  A crib quilt, Whig Rose that is 34" square and yes that makes the border birds delightful and TEENY.  Their tail feathers are only an 1/8 of an inch wide.  It is from about 1860.  ENJOY.
