Stuffed Applique Quilt with BirdsB

About

This folky center medallion quilt is a complete original. The pineapple in the center is the traditional symbol for hospitality. Surrounding it are symmetrically placed floral wreaths and baskets of flowers upon which sits a bird in each. The same red birds also surround the center block. Pairs of yellow lovebirds are placed throughout the border. Each of the birds has embroidered detail coming from its mouth. Almost all of the applique is three dimensional. As is often the case with stuffed appliques, when they are washed the cotton expands and pushes through the appliqued fabric. There are several small darned spots where this occurred but they are very unobtrusive. The quilt has been professionally laundered. It is finely quilted with a variety of patterns. This quilt is illustrated in a 1989 edition of Traditional Quiltworks where the maker is listed as Hannah Hess. A copy of the magazine accompanies the quilt with directions for reproducing it. The magazine say it was made in 1825 but I am certain it was made at least 40 years later in the 1860's. I do agree, however, with their description of it as "magnificent".
