Quilt from the Kuska Collection at the Thomas County, Kansas
Hard to date.
Close fancy quilting, post-1880s greens fading to khaki or dun color.
From my Encyclopedia of Applique
Could it be as late as 1928 when Comfort magazine
published a pattern?
Comfort was quite influential in maintaining a small
and rather regional fashion for red and green appliques
into the 20th century.
If it's so "Conventional" how come these are the only two references to the pattern I can find?
