TRIPLE LAYERED BLOSSOMS APPLIQUE ANTIQUE QUILT

 



An enchanting and fresh graphic in the oeuvre of classic mid 19th century red and green on white applique florals, this unusual example has three large blossoms emerging on stems from a teeny tiny pot. The blooms are three dimensional consisting of scalloped layers one atop the other to give a plumped up appearance. And by setting the identical blocks on point, this creative thinker and quilter made something dynamic to further catch the eye. Though a smidge different in top and side dimensions I think this example would look even more exciting if it were to be hung on a wall as a diamond shape. In excellent professionally laundered condition.
