A lovely 20th century rendition of a beloved classic. The Baltimore Album quilt has known tremendous popularity and recognition from quilt collectors, quilt makers and enthusiasts alike since they first came on the scene in Baltimore, Maryland in 1848. Traditionally made by many hands, each contributor provided an appliqued or pieced block of her own design. This beautiful example of the beloved classic was made from a kit c.1945 using red, green, white and tan calicoes and solids on an off white ground.

Hand appliqued, reverse appliqued, and embroidered throughout in lovely floral wreaths, urns, birds and buds. The flowing red and green floral vining applique border is a gorgeous frame for the inner design. Hand quilted throughout in 1 ¾ inch diagonal cross hatch, parallel lines and chain-of-hearts bands using straight, even stitches. The front and off white backing each fold in to the center bat to form a knife edge carefully stitched closed with tiny, almost invisible stitches.

A wonderful Baltimore Album kit quilt in a great size and in perfect condition. It has been professionally hand washed by Betsey and can be sent to you on approval for private viewing.

Festoon your home this holiday season with the perfect antique hand appliqued quilt for art on your wall, bed or decorating in general. In gorgeous solid Turkey red and overdyed green you just can’t get any more festive. 16 hand appliqued lilies dance among flower buds on a pristine white ground. Solid Turkey red jabots and bows circle the white border measuring 12 3/4 inches on the side borders and 10 inches top and bottom (quilt shown horizontally in photo). Finely done hand quilting consists of outline on each appliqué, 6, 7 and 8 petaled floral motifs in differing sizes and leaf filled trailing vines in the white background. The quilt has a white backing and is finished with a ¼ inch hand applied white binding.

This piece is extremely ordered and well planned but gives the impression of free spirited gaity, emphasized by the “scattering” of appliqued buds and the various sizes of the hand quilted multi-petaled flowers and free flowing leafy vines.

This lovely quilt would be the focal point of your holiday decorating or any time of year. Professionally hand washed by Betsey.
