    Question about quilt pattern #4

    My mom wants to sell her quilts. So, I was wondering what the quilt pattern is on this quilt.
    Thank you so much for your advice.
    Best Regards,

    I don't think there is a name for this pattern. Your mom's quilts are lovely.

    I forgot to ask but this quilt also has tied yarn that have been pulled through the top of the quilt. Does anyone have an idea what that is called and why it would be done? Thank you for your thoughts. Best regards, Rob

    Rob, the quilt hasn't been quilted, so women tied the quilt with the yarn. That is to keep the top, batting, and backing together, and to keep the fabric from moving apart. I would call it a utility quilt. My sister made those. Although, the back looks to be quilted. I don't know what to tell you. It is a pretty quilt and made perfectly.

    It is true there is no real pattern name I know of except it is set in a fields and furrows setting. So it could be called a scrap version of that.

    I agree that the quilt has been "tied". It is what a person did when they were in a hurry to have a warm blanket for winter. It was many times just sewn around the otside edge and "birthed" or turned though the opening and tied to keep everything from shifting around when it was washed. Usually the hired hands had these made from scraps.

    This one looks like the front of a quilt wore out and they "renewed it by placing the top over the old quilt and tying the two together.

    It looks like it was tied to a commercial bedspread for a backing.

    When we lived in Florida in the early 1980's there was a store in Titusville that sold mill ends from factories that made bedding. I think it's possible that I may recognize the type of machine quilting that we see on the back of this as what was available at the time. It was done with poly batting, and the machine made stitch-like marks where it sealed the layers together. My hunch - and it's just a hunch! - is that whoever made this used that type of pre-quilted material for the back and batting and used the tying method to attach her pieced top to it. If I'm right there will be an extra layer of fabric under the pieced top and then the polyfil batt and then the backing that you see.

    Ha! I just read the post above mine and see Barb had the same thought, but was much less wordy!
