Another Christmas-y quilt, an elegant reel block quilt in red and green. 1850-likely from Maryland. Love the secondary design created by the block placement and of course that swag and tassel border!

Close up of the swag border. Look at the quilting under the green swag piece - yes, those are 2 spoons. Now look above the swag- a pair of quilted scissors. Be sure to click on the photo to enlarge so you can see the detail.
