Love Apple Quilt, Circa 1870, New York


This Love Apple quilt is an extremely graceful, sinuous pattern that reminds me of a ballet dance. The flowering trees are exceptional in themselves with the outer branches seeming like outreached arms. The undulating vine throughout the pattern holds it all together in a most elegant way.
Quilting patterns repeat the appliqued leaves. The colour choices add to the appeal of this rarely seen pattern. Condition is excellent. Rochester, New York origin; circa 1870.
