Floral Cornucopia Quilt - Kit
Classification: Building Furnishings, Bedding, Quilt. Materials and Techniques: Appliqued Cotton. Style/Period/Movement: Physical Description: This quilt is an appliqued floral cornucopia pattern made from a kit. The flowers are solid red and yellow calico fabric. The leaves are a combination of solid or calico greens with black stems. The cornucopia is solid green with green and black accent embroidery. The design is appliqued on a white background. There appears to be nine blocks, but the quilt is actually constructed in three long strips. The border has a green, calico, scalloped edge. The quilting follows the applique pattern and the panels are defined by a triple row of quilting stitches. The border is a quilted cornucopia in a repeated pattern with a branch of leaves coming out of it. There is also a floral swag uniting all. Backing fabric is cotton. Exhibition History: Collection or Donor: From the Robert L. Schaeffer Jr. Collection donated to the college in 1987. It is said that Schaeffer (American 1918-2001), an avid collector of American folk art, often crossed paths with the Duponts. The collection largely represents a narrow geographic region consisting of Pennsylvania German objects and was accumulated over four decades. Robert L. Schaeffer, Jr. purchased quilt from Hatti Brunner (1890-1982), Antiques dealer from Reinholds, Pennsylvania in the 1960nulls.
