|We couldn't get all of it on the design wall for the photo!|
The Boston friend (I don't know her name) is a collector of quilts, but not a quilt maker, who's decided she wants to specialize in floral applique quilts. So, my sister was gifted this quilt. Lucky duck!
|A closer view|
The quilt is a large quilt, close to a queen size. Sally and I thought it might be from the 1950's, although some of the fabrics look to be from the 40's and even the 30's. It is in very good condition.
Those big white diamonds are actually 4 diamonds that are the same size as the print diamonds.
Look at these wonderful old fabrics! This is a true scrap quilt - lots of different prints and colors.
We have no idea what the name of this pattern might be. Any ideas? We'd welcome input. I've been calling it the Diamond Quilt.
I love looking at these old prints, don't you?
p.s. Also, if you have a better idea of the age of this quilt, please leave me a comment!
