Here is another in my series of folk art appliqués made on to old large log cabin blocks. This one is based on a quilt owned by the Metropolitan Museum of Art and is known as The Phoebe Warner Bedcover. It was made in 1890. The sheep in her quilt are just a small detail in a large elaborate quilt using a lot of  chintz broder perse surrounding the naive shepherd and his sheep. It is beautiful but a bit odd in its design!  You can see the quilt HERE
