Two wreaths with dots
There are not many of them in my Encyclopedia of Applique,
mainly because they weren't published as patterns before 1970,
although there are plenty of them in vintage quilts.
Most people see them as Cherry Wreaths.
My pictures are primarily from details in mid-19th-century album quilts,
particularly in Baltimore,
which is why the pictures are so poor.
Details, details, details.

From Sue Garman's blog. She called it Flower Circle.
Much like one in the Ken Burns collection.
Found this leafless wreath floating around in cyberspace.
