This original design blue and white quilt with a folk art feel was created by nestling a 6 inch center block of Broken Dishes into a Log Cabin frame of 1 inch logs. Alternating logs of blue chambray and white cotton create a striped effect that is lively and fun, while the color palette provides a soothing undertone. The center block of the quilt has been dated 1921 in hand embroidered, padded satin stitch on a yellow background.

Entirely hand pieced and hand quilted with chevrons in the border and outlining along one side of each log. The lighter blue chambray border is approximately 5 inches wide, with a ½ inch hand stitched binding formed by the front fabric folding over to the back. The backing is white cotton and the quilt is filled with batting just thick enough to be called comfy and cozy.

A wonderful, cuddly cotton quilt with a great assortment of cottons in a medley of 1920's colors and patterns.

With its large size and multiple hues it can be used almost anywhere a splash of fun and color is desired, from a bedroom to a playroom and beyond.

Delaware
$900

This is a lovely two color quilt in the Lemon Peel design. Carefully appliquéd by treadle machine the 'petals' and unique border visually pop off the solid white ground for a wonderful graphic effect. The two color palette of solid green and white works beautifully in any décor. Solids are always a welcome and easy addition to any decorating theme as they mix beautifully with patterns and stripes. Each appliquéd block is a large 14 inches square and contains one four petal Lemon Peel appliqué.

What makes this lovely quilt extra special is the unusual border which frames the design. A green inverted scallop adds movement and a touch of elegance to the white outer border. Hand quilting is executed with outline stitching in the appliqués with cable and 4 petal flowers in the white areas and outer border. The white backing is the same fabric as used on the front with a 1/2” applied white binding.

This quilt is refreshing and bright and in wonderful condition. We did find a petal with two well executed fabric weaves done long ago which are very hard to find (we didn't until just recently). Professionally hand washed by Betsey and ready to be shipped to you on approval for viewing in the privacy of your home.

What a sweet and whimsical additional to your home this hand made quilt would make. From the smallest state in the union with the largest name (actual name “State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations”) you should expect something a little different from the ordinary! A variety of fabric colors, prints and patterns are used in the long trails with a soft green solid used in alternate corners of each block to unify the design. Each block measures 7 ½ inches square and is hand pieced and hand quilted with outline stitches along each trail and both outline and straight line stitches in the white areas between the trails.

The backing is soft white cotton which folds over to the front forming a ½ inch machine stitched binding. A very soft and huggable quilt for all to enjoy it would be equally as effective as a folky and very graphic wall hanging.

In very good condition with slight fading overall this quilt has been professionally hand washed by Betsey.
