Unknown Quilt Maker

Rayons


 Not ALL Quilts are American...

Southern Pakistan (including Sindh) and Western India share a border;
women there have for centuries made a traditional textile called "Ralli."

This ralli, made of rayon (or perhaps a soft polyester),
was probably made about 1960. Wonderful color.

The front is a simple hand pieced patchwork design
of alternating squares and half-square triangles;
it rather resembles a traditional American quilt design called
"Jacob's Ladder."

The back is a wonderful cotton print and meets the 
front at the borders with a knife edge - no additional binding.

This Ralli is hand quilted, simply, and with dark thread.  

The quilting design is organized in what we 
might be called "Log Cabin" designs.
