90 x 90 inches
FRESH to the MARKET!
A very straightforward, charming Four Block applique quilt
in a lovely variation of the ever-pleasing Rose!
The center Four Block design is simple without being simplistic.
We really like the ever so slightly goofy convergence of the appliques in the center.
There some balancing elements here which we think really work:
The two borders are counterpoints to one another --
The Sawtooth border is sharp, the Vine and Leaf border soft and undulating.
Tender and tough.
This is a large quilt, though the photo does not suggest that.
It measures 90 x 90 inches and so is quilt useable on the modern bed.
It may be difficult to visualize the scale:
the central designs are large!
Beautifully hand quilted in a variety of designs...
Stylized Flowers, Scrolls, Feathers, and "By the Piece," too!
A Folk Art Beauty!
