Folky Red and Green Day 21

I adore the folky, funky birds on this Pennsylvania antique quilt, circa 1870.
Starley Antique Quilt Collection

Not sure what kind of birds - doves, eagles?? Such a whimsical, delightful charming quilt!

And if you are thinking it is a one of a kind quilt - close, but there is a more formal version in the International Quilt Museum in Nebraska.

  4. Were all the birds green at one stage? It looks so good with both colours.
