Red Green Bud Applique Quilt with Leaves and Border(Item: Q-637)
This is an attractive early applique quilt from the 1880's that is nicely hand quilted at a tiny 10-11 spi. It is hand appliqued too with tiny sitiches. Condition is excellent with a handful of age spots and slight thinning of a couple red flowers applique. Hand bound using a separate tiny binding. It has a name written on the back side corner that looks to read Anne Smith, as shown. I like the way the flowers curve towards each other and the big cheddar center in the flower. Quality workmanship. From St Lawrence County in northern New York, Potsdam.
