Floral Garden Appliqué Quilt
This colorful quilt, with no known pattern, is a great example of the maker's artistry with color and floral shapes. All of the appliqué is done by hand and is hand-sewn as well as hand-quilted. The colors are very typical of the time and have retained their vibrancy. Using a collection of blues, pinks, lavenders and yellows for the flowers and stems, the maker then used a contrasting jade green for the sashing and binding. This thin quilt has a cotton binding.
