July Antique & Vintage Quilt & Textile Auction
Vintage c1960 Plaid 9 Patch Quilt measuring 77×84″. Comprised of 30 9 patch blocks, 8×8″, set on point, with pink and red plaid alternating squares, setting triangles, and 6″ inner border. There is also a 3.5″ pink solid outer border. Backing is a pink cotton solid, and the quilt is bound in a red gingham binding. It is machine pieced and hand quilted. The batting feels like cotton, but may be a poly blend, or there may be other polyester in the quilt, because there is some pilling on the top, often seen with polyester. The quilt uses a nice variety of woven plaid fabrics skillfully and in a balanced way. In good condition with a few spots, some wear in black gingham fabric, and 2 areas along the border with soiling (someone didn’t wash their hands before bed!).
