Blue and White Baskets
After visiting the Red and White Exhibition in New York in March I thought about the impact those red and white quilts had had on me. I then tried to visualize whether a blue and white exhibit would have had the same impact.
Not so sure on that one as their are so many different blues whereas the turkey red was all the same.
I love basket quilts and this one caught my eye on Ebay in 2004. The description the seller gave was that it was a Kentucky quilt and in fine condition. It is in fine condition but I guess without provenance it could have been made anywhere although it did come from Owensboro KY.
If anyone can give me any ideas to it's age I would appreciate it it.
I still really love this quilt just for it's simplicity.
Enjoy a little bit of eye candy.
