A Christmasy bird popping by to say hello!
c. 1860 basket quilt purchased from Julie Silber. 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. This beautiful quilt is part of my antique quilt trunk show: Birds and Blooms
