Album Quilt

Unidentified Quilt Maker
Circa 1850
84 x 84 inches
Origin Unknown; Found in Ohio

Variations on wreaths, including an unusual guitar-shaped one, are anchored by two pots-of-flowers in this mid-19th century Album quilt. The maker seemed to enjoy making cherries/dots.

The sparkling center is surrounded by first, one Dogtooth border, then an intricate vining leaf, buds, and flower border, and finally a second Dogtooth border.  Note the ruched center of the corner flowers...

In very good condition, with mellowing of the original colors.  I think it is possible that the larger flowers in the lower right corner block have been restored with a turkey red print fabric of the original timeframe.

Hand quilted in nice even stitches.  A lovely example of the art of the Album.
