…..would you be tempted???
I think by the fabrics that this is a genuine 1930s quilt.
Why do I think so? Well the background fabric colour and “conversation” style.The fabrics in the blocks have the same 1930s look. Perhaps feed sack materials?
The batting is thin cotton, not bonded in any way like modern batting.It is all hand quilted.The blocks are not perfectly pieced but still very charming.
Two of the blocks are badly shredded. They could be copied and replaced.
What do you think? Am I right – and would you be tempted?
It is so soft and cuddly. I think it would be nice just folded and popped on the end of a bed, as is. I have seen soft toys made out of old quilts. Would that be an idea? Of course I would like to restore it! The binding is very worn in places but I think the whole quilt could be down sized a bit and new binding made with the spare fabric.
Please make a comment and share your thoughts with me.
