day 22 Red and Green Applique Beauty

Part of the Sandra Starley antique quilt traveling collection - I'd love to share it with you in the cloth!
c. 1850 applique sampler

From the auction listing:
Pieced and appliqued cotton quilt with urn of flowers design. American.
Hand stitched quilt composed of four urn of flowers motifs interspersed with oak leaves and acorns, a wreath of flowers, a leafy pinwheel and floral sprays with undulating flowering vine borders in shades of green, red, orange, pink, navy, and brown solid and printed fabrics on a white ground with white backing and diamond stitched quilting throughout.

80" X 90"


  1. What a fabulous old quilt! I love that wreath and the setting triangle applique especially. I am so inspired - I want to make quilts like this one!
