Center Medallion Quilt: Circa 1860; Pennsylvania
There seems to be no end to the creativity shown by 19th century quiltmakers. This original example is centered with a basket of flowers surrounded by additional pots with birds and a variety of flowers. Some of the flowers are three dimensional made by the technique of ruching. The exuberant center is contained by a diamond inner border and finally by Nine Patch Checkerboard blocks. The maker was bold in her choice of fabrics as well as the appliqued designs. The quilt is from Chester County, Pennsylvania; made circa 1860. Measurements are 88" x 90'; excellent condition.
