Christmas Rose, Day 25

A charming Rose of Sharon/Whig's Defeat c. 1850 with wonderful triple rod quilting. Adore the border baskets. Starley Antique Quilt Collection

 Detail with the triple rod (three line) quilting and charming cheddar and red flower.

Look closely and the very busy design will reveal itself as a 9 block Whig's Defeat set together with very little breathing room or negative space.
