An Amish Applique quilt of Country Roses
The artist created one of our most beautiful Amish applique quilts is of freehand cut roses in deep shades of blue and rose. There is an incredible amount of work in this quilt. The central medallion of this quilt is a wreath of appliqued roses, buds and leaves which are arranged in the shape of a heart. Above this central wreath floats another appliqued element over the pillow cover portion of the quilt. Look at the work in just this one quilt! All four corners of the quit bear a bouquet and the quilt is bordered by a vine of rose buds. The maker’s embroidered elements lend depth and compliment the appliqued flowers, vines and leaves. Her hand quilting is varied and expansive. We see braids, linear patterns and and scallops. What we all seem to like best are the colors of the freehand cut appliques that make up the overall pattern of this quilt. Truly, a great example of Amish applique art.
