| From Lancaster County PA, comes this delightful mid-19th century applique quilt. It measures a large 101 inches square.
|Filled with color and pattern, this great design uses madder red, overdyed green and cheddar fabrics on a white background.|
|The central field is composed of 13 blocks on point, each featuring an urn from which grow three full peony flowers. The blocks are separated by a sawtooth sashing in red and green.|
|The outer border features a vine that sprouts from the corner and continues to the opposite corner, with an inner sawtooth border.|
|Half square triangles surrounding the central field contain urns displaying single yellow tulip blooms.|
|The blooms and urns show reverse applique detail in cheddar.|
|Quilted in outline, and in grids and floral patterns at 7-9 stitches per inch.|
|The backing fabric is white with small black figures.|
