Whig Rose or Rose of Sharon Quilt

I usually try to be objective but I'm loving this new (to me) quilt, circa 1860. This lady sure didn't understand negative space as every inch is covered with applique and triple line quilting-fabulous. While this pattern tends to be very formal, this example is quite folky. One of the cheeriest quilts with a great floral basket border. Circa 1860, 9 block whig rose, rose of sharon or democrat rose quilt.
