Antique Hand Quilting - Mennonite Cheddar Baskets Day 22

Today's hand quilted quilt is a cheddar-licious basket quilt (tomorrow I'll share my reproduction quilt). It is a Mennonite Quilt from Lancaster Co. Pennsylvania. Don't forget to click on pictures to enlarge and see details.

There is a charming heart quilted inside every basket handle and another below each basket.  Lots of feathers and fleur de lys figures too. Diagonal quilting lines in the border. The blue fabric is a chambray and the pink is a delicate floral stripe. Last year I found the twin - exact same piecing and quilting. Maybe they were made for sisters.

Such a cheery quilt! Isn't that sawtooth border a perfect touch! Circa 1890. Starley Quilt Collection.
