Here is an applique bed cover that I acquired recently - it is ENORMOUS - 102 x 111 inches. In red and navy polycotton, it has only a light muslin backing, and is not a "true" quilt. These textiles are made by the Hmong people, and this one has a label on the reverse -"Hand made by Niana Paola in Thailand". One or two triangles have come loose, as this cover has been used in the past...
Although made for the tourist trade, the applique is expertly done.
The stitching is not as close as some others I have seen, but the overall amount of work is astounding.
Here is an older applique panel I bought some years ago from Siripan Kidd. I believe this pattern is called "Elephants Foot". There is reverse applique and well as as triangles in standard applique. Very effective. I have a length of a carrier band but cannot find where I put it - that is even older, again bought from Siripan.
You can see that the stitching is much closer here than on the bedspread shown above.
