Tulip Appliqué Quilt

Charles HammellComment

We just acquired an Amish tuilp applique quilt. We will be showing it for the first time at the Connecticut Spring Antiques Show in Hartford, March 13 & 14.

We like to bring one excellent quilt to every show. They usually sell in the first day. We're pretty picky about quality, artistry, condition, skill and price.  This one is an Amish red, white, and green appliqué tulip quilt. All hand quilted, it's in excellent condition. The maker stitched the date "April the 24 1862" on the vine and tulip border. She employed grid and feathered wreath quilting at a dense 12 stitches per inch. We're reserving it for show clients--it's not available here in our online store.
