Sunflower Quilt

Unidentified Quilt Maker
Circa 1850
76 x 76 inches
Origin Unknown; Found in Ohio

This one's a beauty, with exceedingly fine piecing and excellent hand quilting.  Elongated, pointy-points are not for the beginning quilt maker, and this design with its double rows or points is superbly executed.

The maker could also hand quilt, creating elaborate designs in stitching measuring about 11 inches per inch (counting one side only).  S/he made feathered wreaths and filled in much of the rest with straight line quilting is in double rows, creating a beautifully textured ground.

Excellent Condition with one small area of fraying on the separately applied green cotton binding (see photo). I like how s/he alternated the red and green in the leaf like appliqués on the borders.
