Pomegranate and Rose Quilt

Date: ca. 1850

Botanical or nature-inspired themes have often provided inspiration for many of the Valley’s quilts.  Here the pattern features pomegranates and a rose motif.  The quilt has a four-block appliqué on a bleached cotton ground.  It is joined with a pomegranate and rose border decoration called sashing that runs along three sides of the quilt.
