This description is from an appraisal completed a number of years ago, by a member of American Quilters Society certified appraiser of quilted textiles. Quilt Pattern: A variation of Coxcomb and Currants. Predominant Colors: Red, Green, White, Orange. Fabric/Materials: Green cotton prints with red and orange solids on white domestic.
Edge Finish: Attached red cotton with curved corners. Construction Techniques: Hand appliqué and reverse appliqué and Hand piecing. Quilting Pattern and Amount: There is a dense amount of hand quilting. Patterns include echo around the appliqué, diagonal grid in the corners and a brick pattern alternating with a diamond grid in the borders. Description: There are four appliqué blocks, with a border of sprigs and currants on one end and one side.
The four large appliqué blocks contain a three branch floral device with a rose flanked by pink and red buds. The rose has an orange center. This is surrounded by a wreath of alternating foliage and currants (round red appliqués). The foliage is composed of green branches and leaves which end in red buds at the top of the wreath. Workmanship: Appliqué is Fair The overall appearance of the design is naive.
The quilting is Very Good. There is fabric loss in the Turkey red fabrics and fading in the green print. There are three small brown spots on the top and light brown fold marks on the back. Noted to be part of Namunia Youngs collection in the 1980s, according to quilt historian Merikay Waldvogel.
