1930s Dutch Flower Basket
This is a detail from another of the quilts at the American Museum. It was made by a lady called Alzona Maria Green in New York in about 1932. It is thought to have been made from a kit. The quilting was done by an Amish church group in Iowa.
The overall effect of the colours, soft blue and cream with pinks and greens, is wonderfully restful. No doubt it was more vibrant when it was new.
