This is a lovely older tulip quilt, dating to the mid 1800's. The fabrics are very sweet and the cotton is super-soft and silky, in shades of peach, cream, red and green on a white background.

It does have some small stains, but they don't detract from this beauty and they come from love and use over many, many decades. It is a light-weight quilt, perfect for spring, summer, and fall.

Block patterns were introduced in the early 1800's, with applique gaining popularity in the mid-1800's. Combining red, green and white was popular in the 1840's. Combine these tidbits of quilt history with the fact that this vintage quilt was hand pieced and hand quilted, helps date it to around or just prior to the sewing machine's invention (1850's).

The quilting is done with lovely wreath designs in the white fields. Great workmanship!!! Some deterioration on the fabrics due to the passage of time. Good condition for its age.

Please review all photos carefully, as they are part of the description. I do my best to describe imperfections or damage, but like all vintage items, some wear is expected. Vintage items have gained their status through age, use and love. Expect imperfections. They give a unique character to each item. I will note any major flaws, either by description, photo, or both. If you are looking for a perfect item, however, vintage may not be for you. You are welcome to review my return policy and convo me with any questions. By making a purchase, you are agreeing to the shop policies; all sales are final.
