People who lived during the Depression learned to never throw anything out; they always reused, repurposed, and recycled everything. This 78” x 67” quilt is made from 7” square pieces of men’s suits and shirts machine-sewn together. It is stuffed with feathers (probably from the chicken they had for Sunday dinners!) and a felt blanket is used for the backing. Instead of quilting, it is tufted with heavy orange thread in 9-10 places on each square. This quilt would really keep you warm on a cold winter night. It also weighs almost 8 lbs! The trim around the quilt is from the blanket on the backside whose edges have been pulled around and hand sewn down. It is in very good, almost antique condition. There is one small hole and a few spots on it, but no odors or tears.
This would be an interesting addition to your quilt collection or to use on cold nights. Please contact us if you have any questions.
