Vintage "Grandmother's Flower Garden" Patchwork Quilt - image 1 of 9

This cheerful, colorful quilt is in the popular "Grandmother's Flower Garden" pattern. The pattern was a popular one with quilters during the Depression Era because it lent itself to the use of many different, unrelated printed fabrics. Ladies were very cost-conscious during this time, and every scrap of left-over fabric was utilized. The top portion of this quilt was hand-pieced between 1930 and 1950; all of the fabrics in the top are 100% cotton and of this period of time. The bright-white backing and puffy filling of this quilt are a cotton/polyester blend, which didn't appear until the 1960's, so the quilt was finished a generation later than it was pieced. The binding (beautifully hand-stitched) is commercially available seam binding. The quilter did an excellent job of completing this quilt, hand-quilting it neatly "in the ditch" at 8-9 stitches per inch. The quilt, and estate piece, was found in a suburb of Chicago. It has been used seldom, if at all, and is in excellent original condition. There are no issues. It is shown on a full-sized bed and measures 76" X 86." It may be washed in the washing machine on cool or warm and dried in the dryer.
