RMQM's Collection of Red & Green Quilts
This vibrant red and green quilt was made by the donor's great-great-grandmother, Amelia Flavia Russell Tilden (1829-1932) in Pennsylvania c. 1850. The pattern is "Double Peony". Fabrics used include solid red and green on a white background (all cotton). The 13 hand-pieced and hand-appliqued blocks, 8 half-blocks, and 4 corner blocks are set on point. They are all individually bordered with green fabric, then set with plain white 3" sashing. The green outer border measures 1 1/2" wide, and is on all four sides of the quilt. The binding is pieced from green and teal fabrics and is hand-stitched. Despite its used, slightly faded, and stained condition, it has strong visual impact.
