Crossed Tulips Doll Quilt: Circa 1870; Pennsylvania

By far, the greatest number of doll quilts are pieced. This Crossed Tulips example is unusual for the primary pattern is appliqued. The tiny, pieced sawtooth border offsets the bold pattern very well. It is nicely quilted and measures 18" x 22". Condition is good but not perfect. There is some wear to the binding but the body of the quilt is strong. From Pennsylvania; circa 1870.
