Day 8 - A Month of Antique Quilts - Antique Red and Green Crib Quilt

 Thanks again for visiting my blog. Here's a small treasure for you. 
Such a charming antique crib quilt with a center Lily, Tulip, or Peony block (goes by many names). 

Great chintz borders too. Starley quilt collection.

Here's a close-up of two of the fab fabrics. Click on the photo to see it close-up. The green is a two-step dye (yellow + blue = green) and in several spots the yellow has gone away leaving blue. The red is a Turkey Red - a fabric which required many steps to create.


  1. You are so fortunate to own so many beautiful red and green quilts. My friend, Laurene Sinema, who has passed on now, was a huge fan of them. In her shop, there was a Red and Green Appliqué Club one night a month, and it was one of my favorites of her clubs.


Thanks for visiting and commenting.
