Q8160 Diamond in a Square / Broken Dishes Quilt
74 x 80 inches
Something I want more of is happiness....and this is a happy quilt...one
that just makes me smile and think of what a happy woman this quilter
must have been :-).....or if you want a very cuddly quilt....or if you
are a textile print junkie, such as me, then this quilt is one that you
will spend hours looking at the dozens of different early Depression
calicoes...These cotton calicoes are the fabrics that our dresses were
made of...and as a woman I would be wearing dresses not stretch pants!
These unused pieces may have been what was left over from making the
quilters clothes...or was she a dress maker where there are so many
Surrounding the pieced quilt is a deep turquoise border and finished with a deep pink binding. The backing is a very cozy thin striped flannel in off white, pink, yellow, green and a very thin line of black. All piecing and quilting are executed by hand. The quilting is done in a 1" overall grid pattern.
This quilt appears never to have been used....Now organically hand washed by Betsey and ready to be sent to your home for viewing.
