1880 Applique top

c. 1880
Antique Applique Quilt TOP
76" x 92"
Entirely handmade, including the stitched long seams--tiny stitching -Meticulous applique work which is...
...minutely top-stitched at the very edge of each piece

21-inch blocks, diagonally set--note that the stitcher opted not to add rosebuds to one of the two side twining borders!
