STENCILLED QUILT OF FLORAL BLOCKS


 
STENCILLED QUILT OF FLORAL BLOCKS
 



The stencilled (painted) blocks alternate and repeat in the center| while a different motif is used for the framework. There are groupings of roses and leaves. Decorative vines alternate with roses that have peach petals and yellow pollen centers. This hard-to-find| very early 19th century American bedcover is unusual because it is QUILTED in addition to beng stencilled; stencilled spreads were typically one layer. Found in New England.
