The other night I was on eBay briefly and couldn't resist typing in my favorite search ~red green quilt~ to see what wonders might be lurking in the antique textiles area. When this quilt popped up, I almost fell off my chair!
I wanted you all to see it so I contacted the seller who readily gave me permission to share it here. Rarely have I seen such an exuberant, happy red and green applique quilt...the term 'fat and sassy' comes to mind. I think it's just wonderful!
As if the bold applique design isn't enough, the quilting looks to be impressive as well. Dense feather wreaths can be seen on the back, centered in the giant blossoms.
If you have a little extra change jingling in your pocket this week, you might want to visit the eBay auction page for this beauty. And if not, you still might want to click over to see more photos that the seller, hearts-n-stitches, has posted there.
I'm off to a local quilt show this morning and then have an unexpected couple of days to myself. We were supposed to be heading out of town for the weekend but our plans were necessarily cancelled mid-week. I may even get another post up!
