Day 14 -- Hickory Reel 1830 or earlier

Most of my collection is multi-fabric or scrappy but I do have a few fancy 2 fabric quilts. But most of those are red/green appliques. This beauty is a quilted tour de force. The milk chocolate floral is beautiful and the neutral is actually a blue/white ribbony stripe which adds a lot of interest. The applique design is delicate and the swag border is the perfect finish.

Isn't she lovely?

And one of my favorite things about the quilt -- the backing is an early cheater cloth (preprinted patchwork). It looks like pieced tumbling blocks but is actually a printed design.

The full quilt in all its simple elegance.

  1. A beauty, Sandra.
    When I just glanced at the backing photo, before reading about it, I thought someone had gone to an awful lot of effort to make such a pieced backing. : )
