Embroidered Kewpie Quilt: Circa 1930; Pa.
Kewpie dolls are an unusual quilt motif and nearly half of the blocks of this embroidered quilt show them in different poses. Many of the remaining blocks are of a busy Sunbonnet Sue. Also out of the ordinary is the use of multicolors of embroidery. Excellent condition. Well crafted throughout; border consists of four different quilting patterns. Measures 74" x 82"; circa 1930. Pennsylvania origin. Illustrated "The Quilt: A History and Celebration of an American Art Form" by Elise Schebler Roberts.
