1930s Rambling Rose

Another quilt at the American Museum, a rambling rose from the 1930s, made in Pittsburgh.  I particularly liked this one for the lovely soft colours (faded, no doubt), the hand stitching around the appliqué and for the lovely delicate design of the rosebuds.

The hand embroidered detail has been so skilfully done.  It is such a shame that the name of the maker isn't known.
