Antique Lily Crib Quilt -two step greens, turkey reds, and chintz

Lily block center of a charming little crib quilt made for a clearly cherished child in the 1840s. Starley quilt collection, part of my Sweet Little Things antique quilt study class or trunk show and also my Birds and Blooms show.

Here's the full crib quilt

This is another example of a two step green (yellow + blue = green) where the yellow has gone leaving the blue behind. And the flower is a Turkey Red print.

Detail of the blocks and the beautiful chintz floral border.

  1. Interesting layout. The border almost seems like an afterthought.


Thanks for visiting and commenting.
