Vintage Eagles and Pomegranates Quilt

This "Eagles and Pomegranates" hand applique quilt was made in Pennsylvania around 1860. It measures 85" x 85." It's part of the Linda Giesler Carlson and Dr. John V. Carlson Collection of Four-Block quilts at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. 

I like the fresh modern look of this quilt made with what looks like solid color fabrics. It's a little quirky too: note the path of the pink vine. This quilt was certainly well cared for over the past 150+ years.

It's gorgeous! And you are right about it having a modern look because of the colors.

Visiting that museum is on my bucket list. Guess I should have made the effort when I was working on my master's degree at UNL - in Lincoln.
