Here is a beautiful Depression-Era (ca. 1930-1950) quilt in an unusual appliqué design with a bright royal blue border and grid. The colors are unfaded and wear is minimal. Some green, a bit of pale yellow, and two prints using some pinks make up the flowers. The design is similar "amaryllis" but could have another name. All work on this quilt was done by hand. The maker, instead of using a blind stitch to appliqué, used a tiny white running stitch along the top edge of the floral pieces. The quilting (8-9 stitches per inch) is in royal blue thread that matches the border. There is a floral motif to the border quilting design that reflects the appliqué work. The front is top-stitched to the back, eliminating a binding. The quilt seems to be an original work and not a "kit" quilt. The piece is 100% cotton. It may be machine-washed in cold water and dried in the dryer. It is clean and ready to put on your bed. It measures 78" X 81" and is a generous full size. It is shown on a full-sized bed. The quilt was found in northern Illinois.
