Glorious 1940s Patchwork Quilt (astb471)

A really pretty patchwork quilt which dates to the 1940s/early 1950s. The quilt is made from an incredible variety of cotton and cotton-blend fabrics of this era - and it is huge! The well thought out design incorporates so many different and pretty patterns - too many to mention - but some of our favourites are the stripes, ginghams, checks, spots and dainty pink roses. But a special mention has to go to the sweet floral heart garlands! The reverse of the quilt is a deep ointment pink cotton which also shows around the front edges, co-ordinating perfectly with the superb colours in the fabrics.

This is one of the largest vintage patchwork quilts to grace the Vintage Home shop - so many pretty fabrics to admire! The quilt is approximately 98" by 117" (and can be used any way round you choose.) It is in good, clean condition. There is fading to one area which has resulted in wear to SOME of the patches within this area. The area of fading/wear is near to one corner and is within an area of approx. 45" down and 33" in from the edge. The majority of patches within this area are NOT worn. (See last photo which shows the worst of the worn patches.) This part of the quilt was probably exposed to sunlight for a good many years. The quilt is so large that it could be cut down. Antique patchwork quilts are an excellent and important reference for the fabric designs and trends throughout the decades and although a part of this quilt is not perfect, it is still an exceptional example.
