My Old Quilt.


I have had this quilt for quite a number of years. I did not make it myself but bought it at a salerooms in Alnwick, Northumberland. when I live in Amble in the 70's I used to go to the salerooms regularly. I bought quite a few quilts but over the years they have dwindled away. This has not been made the normal way. The top has been made out of large pieces of fabric and topstitched onto the middle layer. Not sure what the middle layer is though.



It has been bound in a rose print fabric very crudely.



And this is the reverse side plain and checked materials. I assume it was made in the war years more out of necessity than as a work of art. Maybe its from the fifties I'm not sure.

It now covers my light coloured settee, so our black haired dog Lucky, doesn't make a hairy mess of it.
