Saturday at the Quilt Museum - Pickle Dish

Pickle Dish Collage

This first quilt caught my eye today, and so we're off on a tour of Pickle Dish Quilts.  They are also known by the name "Indian Wedding Ring."  They seem to be related in looks to New York Beauty patterns, as well.

Pickle Dish 1880's

This one is fun to look at closely.  There are so many different prints in the "teeth" of the pattern.  And I always like a red, white and blue quilt.

This one shows the fading of fugitive green to tan.  It always amazes me how some pieces fade and some don't.  The other colors are antimony orange and rust.

I just love blue.  What can I say??

 Red, White & Blue Pickle Dish

 Red, White & Blue Pickle Dish 1890's

There's no more information than the date on this one, but I liked the patriotic flavor of it and the sawtooth borders.

I'm ending with this one because I love it.  I've shared it before, but every time I see it, it stops me.  The variation in the green is actually fading, but I really like the feel it gives the overall piece.  The borders are over-the-top and inspire me to try something like it someday.

Thanks for joining us for our tour of Pickle Dish Quilts!

Happy Quilting!!
