Vintage Embroidered Quilt Top

Yes, summer is in full bloom here in San Francisco. Cold, gray, and drizzling! Brrrr. But, just to get the day started, I just wanted to show you this pretty vintage quilt top that Raquel brought to share with me. It has 48 states flowers embroidered with a sign of two state blocks cut off. This photo doesn't do any justice, but it is so pretty! And so vintage! I wish they make a kit like this today as they did in the old days. Raquel is hoping to take over this quilt and finish it someday. Thank you for sharing, Raquel!

  1. This pattern is still available on Ebay. It apparently was published in 1931 as a series in the newspaper. The original series excluded Alaska and Hawaii, but the ebay seller oldpatterns has created a pattern for those states.
