This is the second quilt we had the opportunity to see. I love how timeless the colours in both of the quilts are so timeless. Even though they were made in the 1800's, I can see someone picking out similar colour combinations now. In fact, one of our friends has started scouring the stores to lime green.
This quilt dates from 1840 - 1860. I love how the baskets are oriented sideways on the quilt.
Each of the blocks was outlined with red piping. Isn't that a great idea.
The quilting in this quilt was wonderful. There were lots of interesting bits (that sadly don't show up well in the photos) like maple leaves. I really like the circles the quilter added on the scalloped boarder.
