We're looking at a pair of quilts so similar I had the pictures filed as the same quilt until I looked a little closer. The most obvious difference is that one is sashed with a different color and one is in a lot better shape than the other. They're attributed to the Carolinas.
The North Carolina quilt was documented in their state project, attributed by the family to Annie Daly Creech (1827-1904) who spent most of her life in Goldsboro, Wayne County.
Years ago documenter Erma Kirkpatrick thought it dated to before the Civil War and she noted it was both pieced and appliqued. Although she might have been referring to the blocks being joined as the piecing she also might have been talking about the leaves being pieced into a circle, which sometimes was the technique used in this design. The fruit at the top was also sometimes pieced into a circle.
The McKissick Museum at the University of South Carolina owns the second one, attributed to Adella Hays, about 1850.
The chintz-scale floral borders in the two quilts are different. Even though we cannot see much of Annie's we do get a good view of Adella's. Both are cut to feature a stripe of florals. The idea of bordering a conventional applique quilt with a chintz floral is SO Carolina. They did love their chintz and they had a lot of it.
