About

Extraordinary quilt-top with bright and graphic applique images of a hand, hearts, stars, trees of life, boots, flags and abstract patterns. In the centre on a bright red ground are the initials H&M and the date of 1888. There are also broderie perse birds adding an additional element to an already wild and kaleidoscopic textile. The choices of startling colors and printed cottons make a rare and masterful graphic statement. Recently found in Vermont.
