Antique Christmas Wreath Day 23

Sending Holiday Cheer with this floral wreath from my 1850 Virginia Crib Quilt. The quilt was clearly made for a beloved child. Amazing this quilt survived the Civil War in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.

And another lovely floral motif from the VA crib quilt. And yes, it is a "signature" quilt but mostly initials instead of full names. And done in teeny cross stitch. be sure to click on the wreath photo to enlarge it and see the little stitches.

And tulips on this block with more cross stitch initials.

And a bit more of the antique quilt with my recreation.

To see more of the original and the reproduction
