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.

Thanks for visiting and I love to hear comments.


  1. Those tail feathers are small. I think I would make the tail as one piece for easier stitching if I were to be doing it.

  2. Oh my goodness that is alot of work to put into a crib quilt!! I am making a civil war era quilt right now for my upcoming babe and I don't think I would put that much beautiful applique effort into one! They are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Thanks so much for posting this quilt, it's amazing. Can't believe the work that's gone into it!

  4. Love that first crib quilt. That is a treasure.

  5. Oh I absolutely LOVE these! Gorgeous!!
