American Cotton Applique Quilt

Roll over for video transcript From a private estate collection is this delightful cotton appliqué "Love Apple" quilt, to be sold as lot 429 at an estimate of $500-700. The piece was made in 1861 by the consignor's paternal grandmother in Mt. Auburn, Indiana at the tender age of fourteen. A simple red border encases the applied, blossoming love apples, all set upon a background of repeating, quilted wreath forms. The piece measures 74 inches wide by 91 ½ inches in length. This serves as a wonderful glimpse into the history of quilting in the United States.
