History

The name of the maker is unknown but it was made in the USA probably in the 1930s. It was purchased at a garage sale in 1992-1993 in California by the present owner. The vendor was selling off his mother's effects and had sold all her other quilts of which there were many. He really didn't want to sell this quilt as it had been used as a mattress protector and was still stained despite washing. The vendor did not wish to give his name to the purchaser. The quilt is not used now.

Description

Embroidered floral squares quilt. Consists of sixteen embroidered squares, mainly flowers, on white sheeting divided by pale green and pale apricot floral sashing. Hand quilted in a square within a square pattern. The binding is the same pattern as the sashing and has been put on by machine. The padding is very thin processed cotton and the backing is white sheeting. This quilt was possibly made from a pre-stamped kit.
