Tulip Applique Patterned Quilt
A beautiful Tulip Applique quilt designed using only two cotton calico mid nineteenth century prints worked on white cotton. Exceptionally large feathered quilting is skilfully stitched within a wide border surrounding the pattern of this quilt. All hand stitched. This quilt graphically presents well (especially if hanging) despite the fabric popping in the blue calico fabric. Note: the blue calico cotton vine fabric throughout has wear including small holes. Unfortunately this happened with the walnut dyes used from this period. An early quilt with many more years of enjoyment yet. Or could be restored if you are an enthusiastic quilter. 93.5" x 92".
