Antique Crib Quilt Burgoyne Surrounded - Double Sided Crib Quilt

A rather unique crib quilt featuring 4 Burgoyne Surrounded blocks circa 1860. Burgoyne Surrounded isn't a super common quilt pattern and is even less common as a crib quilt.  Starley Quilt Collection, part of my Sweet Little Things antique crib/doll quilts trunk show or antique quilt study class.


Such an unusual fabric choice for a two color quilt - so busy that the block design can hardly be deciphered close up and needs distance to be truly appreciate.

The pieced backing is a nice surprise. It is an earlier/older top that was likely recycled to create the quilt. Note the Baptist Fan/ Elbow quilting
