Quilt in the collection of the Denver Art Museum
Victorian Rose it's called
Maureen Franz's Briar Rose
The July pattern for Cassandra's Circle Block of the Month at
the Civil War Quilts blog features a rose with reverse appliqued detail.
Looking at roses with similar detail I realized I had pictures of three
that were rather unusual wreath designs.
A triple rose wreath
This one with detailed buds and a border of the same design once belonged to
collector Phyllis Klein, sold at Jenack Auctions.
Quilt perhaps signed by Christiann Drick Smith, 1866
Hughsville, Lycoming County, Pennsylvania
Smithsonian American Art Museum
Another quilt of the same nine wreaths but with a different appliqued border.
Wreaths aren't often based on 3 or 6 divisions but it works
A more complicated relative
Just last week Merikay Waldvogel saw this album sampler quilt dated 1860 in
Jonesborough, Tennessee with the rose, leaves and buds as a block.
Look at how the pink (not reverse appliqued) is added.
