Red and Green Antique Quilt

Roger, the dealer, called this a Christmas quilt.  But we know different!  No info, or date.  So hard to say with all solids.  But there are all the clues.  It is large, all the marvelous quilting.  Wonderful trapunto.  Red and green.  All the motif elements are laid out in eights. Love that star in the middle.  Really a wonderful quilt, even with the worn spots.  Brought it home from Denver. I am calling it Rose of Sharon variation.  Please correct me if you have a different name.


  1. What a superb quilt - love the colours but especially love the quirky quilting patterns - all the wobbly trapunto baskets! Thanks so much for sharing this one.

  2. What a fantastic quilt.....a real treasure! Thanks for sharing it!

  3. This quilt is a work of art!! I love the quilting and the trapunto motifs!
