Depression-Era Applique "Overall Sam" Quilt - image 1 of 8

Appliqued little boy figures shown from the back are repeated across the field of this hand-made mid-century (1930-1955) quilt. He is nicknamed "Overall Sam" and corresponds to the "Sunbonnet Sue" quilts made for little girls during the same era. The figures have been outlined in black stitching to accent them. The applique work was done by hand with invisible blind-stitching. The quilting was also done by hand at 9-10 stitches per inch. This excellent quality quilt appears to have never been used and is in pristine condition. It is a large quilt, measuring 82" wide and 104" long. It was photographed on a full-sized bed. The fabrics are all 100% cotton; this quilt may be washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer, using a cool or warm setting.
