So a few years later after purchasing my Whig Rose of the last post, I was visiting Great Aunt Carl in Greenville, Alabama. I popped into the Red Barn antique store and guess what I found for $25. I almost dropped dead with delight. An antique Whig Rose summer spread......all hand appliqued, no batting and no quilting. It has a backing of the muslin which of course is perfect for hot Alabama summers. The colors are much more vibrant than my Whig Rose quilt, because this one looks like it has never been used. My cup runneth over!!
