Happy and perky would be the way I describe this center medallion appliqué quilt. I believe this is a kit quilt, however, I’ve been unable to locate the company that distributed it. This quilt has been appliquéd using some of the tiniest stitches I have ever seen. The light and dark purple grapes have been stuffed. All applique work including the grapes, leaves and vines are outline quilted. The beautifully quilted center medallion shows a display of clusters of quilted grapes and leaves. There are only 4 solid colored fabrics used in the creation of this quilt, making it an easy addition to any home using these colors. The appliqued vines range from 1/8" to 1/4” in diameter while the grapes are 3/4” in diameter. Diagonal quilting radiates out from the center in 1-1/8” grids. The direction of the grid quilting draws one's eye into the center and the beautiful medallion. A quilt fit for a queen size bed with 6-1/2” overhang on each side. A stunning addition for a summer home or any environment that is bright and cheery. In perfect and what appears to be unused condition, this quilt has been organically washed and is ready to be sent for your viewing and approval.
