Top 20 Quilts of 2017: #2, Magnificent Floral Appliqué

Merry Christmas! This month, I am posting a series of blogs counting down my top 20 quilts of the year. All the quilts were acquired by the collection in 2017, and they represent four centuries of American quilts. Stay tuned for #1...

Something unusual happened when I brought this mid-19th century floral appliqué quilt to the December Portland Modern Quilt Guild Meeting for Show & Tell. Before I could say a word, the audience erupted in applause. I was a little surprised, but the quilt deserved the ovation. This best-of-kind applique quilt was offered in a sleepy eBay Live event held by a California auction house on a Sunday evening. An absence of competitive bidders made it a remarkable bargain.
