I have a regular search in eBay that sends me alerts when period items I'm interested in are listed; one of them is appliquéd quilts. I'm surprised by how many stunning period quilts are listed right now. I really don't need quilts, because I already have 7 pieced quilts I've made myself for our 2 beds, but it is always fun to see what's out there. Just in case any of you are interested, I'll include some of them here.
|This GORGEOUS cotton 30's Mountain Mist "painted poppies" quilt is hand appliquéd and hand quilted, with hand embroidered accents. There is quilting around the appliqué and in straight line, grid, and poppy designs in the background, all at an even 7-8 stitches to the inch. The back is white, the hand stitched binding is solid green, and the batting is thin. It measures 70" X 84" and is in excellent, sturdy condition, with a couple of tiny, faint age spots (hard to find) and no wear. $1,195.|
|This BEAUTIFUL cotton 30's spring bouquet/tulip quilt is hand appliquéd and hand quilted, with hand embroidered accents and a scalloped edge. There is quilting around and within the appliqué and in close grid, rope, and feathered wreath designs in the background, all at an even 6-7 stitches to the inch. The quilt is a kit pattern, so there are tiny, pale blue dots in the background showing the quilter where to quilt. The back is white, the hand stitched binding is solid green, and the batting is thin. It measures 76" X 88" and is in excellent condition, with a couple of small, faint age spots (hard to find) light surface dirt in a couple of places, and no wear. The quilt feels strong and sturdy overall. $975.|
There's actually quite a few more, I just got tired of copying them. :)

Marie Webster's family has released some of her patterns in pattern books. There are two of them. Here is one of them: https://amzn.to/344OPk8Delete
