Q7048 Whig Rose Quilt
81 x 84 inches

This Whig Rose patterned quilt is beautifully appliqued and all outline quilted. Comprised of an early Double Pink, Turkey Red, vegetable dyed green on a background of white. The patterned squares measure 12" square on point joined with white blocks also measuring 12" square. Even though the applique and quilting are all executed by hand, the blocks are joined by an early treadle machine. The use of a sewing machine at this time denotes a family of comfortable means.

There is an 8" border which includes a separately applied 1/2" binding. The entire border is quilted in a feathered vine pattern. Each corner has a medallion quilted pattern. The 4 sides all have a star quilted in the center of the vine. There are medallions quilted between each appliqued pattern. The balance of the quilt has horizontal straight line quilting 1/2" apart.

A quilt that is perfect to be used on one's bed or couch.

Organically hand washed and ready to be sent, with free shipping, for your approval.
