Do you wonder like I do, why some of the blocks seem to be turned the wrong way? And did the maker get tired of applique so she put in a few basket blocks instead? Pot Of Flowers. 1870 Pennsylvania. Photo by SurrendrDorothy, via Flickr
AWESOME 1800's Antique SUNBURST Quilt, Etsy, TextilesandOldThings,
COTTON PATCHWORK QUILT Dutch, ca. 1795–1800 Trade, political history and a distinctive regional aesthetic come together in this exceptional Dutch quilt. Its most striking visual impact is the wealth of patterned cottons that document over eight hundred different designs of both Indian and French origin
Stars with Applique Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania Dense patterning makes this combination of Star of Bethlehem; Oakleaf; Variable Star and Hourglass a real knock-out. Graduated sizes of each frame add to the drama of the large central star. Colors and fabrics have mellowed with washing. Likely a unique combination of patterns. Measures 82" x 99"; circa 1870. Pennsylvania origin.
