Today, I had a quilt appraised and was told the design/technique was common for scrap quilts circa 1950 in the Midwest, USA.
Individual units form 1/2 square triangles blocks when complete and are identical front and back. Edges are turned in and whip stitched closed - forming a knife edge.
Individual units are then whipped stitched together to form blocks/ designs ===pinwheel, modified snowball, etc.
Flannel is used as the batting. Outside of unit is printed sugar/flour sack and other half is plain flour sack in ecru.
I inherited this quilt and want to document this colorful gem made by my paternal grandmother. I was only five when she died and all of her children are also gone. So many questions...... This quilt will not be sold!!!!!!!!!
If you happen to have any info on quilt patterns from magazines in late 1940's to early 1950's, I would love to learn from you. Thank you :-)
