ROSE TREE APPLIQUE
Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in Indiana
70 x 73 inches
Circa 1880
Cottons


Wonderful Combination of Elements!

The quilt maker, who probably hails from the American South,
had several great ideas, and put them all together in this
colorful, charming, playful and folk-y pieced and appliqued Four Block quilt.

The quilt maker did wonderful, varied, and fine hand quilting designs which are 
confident, plentiful, well executed.  Visible in the photos.

Very Good Condition.  Flat and lightweight, and square.
The quilt has a few scattered stains, and there is a little bit of color loss in the teal.

We see a couple of tiny places where the red has started to thin out.
None of these issue is very distracting.  
This beauty is generally sturdy, and displays beautifully.

We are very fond of the unusual "dotted line" ribbon-y borders.

An unexpected addition, which with the single grape wreath block in the center,
 makes for a truly memorable quilt.
