Business Name: Pieces Of The Past Antiques ( Cheryl Leonard Van Denburg)Contact Info: Cell 585 737 5971Item Name: Applique Tulip Quilt, c 1870Item Description:Thus lovely Applique Tulip Quilt dates to c1880. It was completely hand pieced and hand quilted. Meandering vine pattern quilting surround each block of beautiful Tulips finely appliqued and around the border. Tulip appliques are worked in clear, bright colors: patterned green and yellow calico and turkey red on white. The quilting is very fine and has about 10 stitches to the inch. The quilt is in crisp original condition...and looks to never have been washed. This indicates that it was probably the best quilt in a trousseau....and kept for special visitors in a cedar chest....it has no odor. It measures 84" x 84".
