Charming Nursery Rhymes Quilt Hand Embroidered and Appliqued
This very sweet quilt had been lovingly and exquisitely hand embroidered and appliqued with scenes from childhood favorite nursery rhymes. Mother Goose, Tommy Tucker, Little Bo Peep, Humpty-Dumpty, My Son John, Simple Simon, Mary Had a Little Lamb, Jack and Jill, Polly Put the Kettle On, The Crooked Man, Jack Be Nimble and Tom the Piper’s Son are portrayed in the center, and three sides are filled with embroidered animals. Some of the fabrics used in the appliques are 1930’s prints including feedsacks. Background is pale yellow, edges are bound in brown. Back is creamy yellow. All cotton. Batting medium weight. Machine quilted. Measures 59 ½” x 81”. Excellent condition. A really unique quilt. Would be wonderful in a kid’s bedroom or playroom to use or to display on a wall.
