There are innumerable variations of the floral applique pattern. This comes closest to Rose of Sharon or Whig Rose but, as is often the case, it is not a standard pattern. Tulip shaped leaves coming from the central flower are an unusual touch. Most original are the appliques to either side of the central flower and the wonderful undulating appliqued border. The red is a solid color and green is a very fine calico print.
The quilt is an unusual size - measuring 30" x 40 1/2". It is nicely quilted with diagonal lines in the body and a variety of different shaped leaves in the border.
Condition is excellent. Made circa 1870; Berks County, Pennsylvania origin.
