Day 7 Birds and Baskets

A Christmasy bird popping by to say hello!
c. 1860 basket quilt purchased from Julie Silber of the Quilt Complex. Beautiful piecing, applique and quilting and such attention to detail - look at that tiny piping next to a fine binding below the bird.

From New York State, probably made by member of Howe family. The quilting is 11- 12 stitches per inch - very small.

Love the birds, flower buds or fruit and the hearts in the corners - so charming.

76" x 92"

  2. I am sure enjoying seeing the quilts that you are sharing on your blog this month. Today's post with the bird and flower applique is a different twist for the outside triangles. It adds just the right touch.

  3. A beautiful basket quilt, and I love the unique applique in the setting triangles.

  4. I like birds on quilts. And this one in red and green is very interesting. I like the bird shape.
