Default Need Help Identifying Quilt Pattern and Possible Age - #2

Another estate sale find. Could use help identifying pattern and possible age. Much looks hand sewn but some could be machine.

I concur with GFG and some fabrics may be feedsacks. Probably 1930-40 but the feedsack fabrics may be older.

This quilt may be put together by sewing machine, but, it is hand quilted. Pretty small hand quilting too! I would bet it is 1927 or 8. I think it is very beautiful. You are lucky to find it.

That's such a sweet GFG- to me the fabrics look like the 30's or 40's.
Lucky you!

I would bet it was hand pieced. That was how they use to make the GFG quilts. Hand quilted for sure.

Grandmother's Flower Garden from around 1940 (I see mint green solids common to 1940).

Are all your posts on this board about identifying quilts? As a collector you can easily tell the difference between hand and machine sewing.

Great find and I agree with everyone else-it is a Grandmother's Flower Garden and the fabrics look to be from the 30's or flour sacks. The quilt is beautiful and looks to be in fairly good condition.
