|Antique 1850 Rose of Sharon Applique Quilt|
The border is over the top with all the different flowers -irises, tulips, etc. I really like how the 3 stemmed flower groups have been stitched to make them into a basket. And the two different birds are delightful and the red birds really seem to be enjoying the blue berries or grapes. They do look delicious. There are a lot of embroidered details (stitching on appliques, etc.)--so much to take in. Enjoy-I sure am. Please click on the photos to see more details.
If you have seen a similar quilt, please let me know as I haven't found anything close and neither has the dealer.
