Day 16 Some Christmasy Red and Green

Can't believe it is almost Christmas! Time to share some antique beauties with you. And if you'd like to see these in the cloth. I'm available to come to your guild, shop, or show. I love sharing these and making people smile. I have a variety of trunk show/talks, 1/2 day and all day quilt history classes and also classes that combine sewing with antique viewing.

2 blocks of turkey red prints with lovely delicate blue details. c. 1850.

The quilt has beautiful quilting. Below is a maple leaf - stem is bottom right and leaf is pointing left (it helps to hold your head sideways). Click on the photo to enlarge.

A cool quilted sunflower

Like many early quilts - it is very large. 96" x 100"
Large size is often a good clue to an early quilt.
