Whig Rose Applique Quilt(Item: Q-898)
This atttractive red and green applique quilt has a touch of orange print in the centers of the roses. I call this a Whig Rose and it has alot going for it. The condition is excellent. The design is somewhat different and it also has a border. The applique is well done and the hand quilting is at a nice 8-9 spi. The rose has curved vines and the buds include some reverse applique. Another unusual twist to this quilt is the added red and green appliqued diamonds dividing the blocks, making somewhat of a sashing. The hand quilting is done in a straight line diagonal throughout the quilt. For the binding the backing was brought forward to the front and machine stitched down, all of what looks to be original. A nice sized 9 block quilt.
