    I found this quilt at my mom's when she passed 6 years ago. I doubt she made it. I've never seen her quilt.

    It is hand quilted. It needs to have the binding replaced because it it very tattered and in bad shape.

    It is huge. No label on it either.

    Now, my question is... does anyone know the era these fabrics are from? The background is really white, but my camera has a mind on it's own tonight. My sister has never seen it before either, and I am wondering who made it.

    I would say 40s or 50s and that is just guess...
    From the look of the fabric used.

    See...this is the reason we should always label our work...I'm sorry I can't help you determine the age..but it is pretty.

    I have the stripe and had a shirt like the plaid. Your Mom might have got it from a tag sale. I have no idea of the age, but its pretty

    What a lovely old quilt. :thumbup:
    I have been sewing for over 50 years and do not recall any of the fabric.
    I would put my guess at being 50 or older.
    There are times I wish I had scraps from when we were growing up to make into something like that.
    This is a treasure :thumbup:

    Connecting threads has a free pattern that looks similar to yours. Whirring pinwheels or something like that.

    I also have a quilt that I inherited when my mother died. I know she never quilted...never owned a quilt either. Comforters were the only things in the house she bought as she made all our clothes, bedding, curtains, drapery, apholstery, etc.

    I have to take a pic of it, and put it on here. But no one knows where it came from. It just showed up in my mom's room at the nursing home one day. No label, no nothing.

    This is exactly why quilts need to be documented.

    Can you imagine, all that lovely work and no label. Poor quilt...it needs an identity. I name my tote bags too. I also have a pair of capri pants in a whacky stripey-floral that i made out of a bargain fabric and call them "wild thing" lol. C
