bowtie squares

Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in California
66 x 80 inches
Circa 1930

Simple, Strong Graphics!

We love the simplicity and directness of this circa 1930s "Bowties" quilt.
Yes, Bowties!

Check out the second block down, second row in on the left;
 in the orange/salmon block you can see how the quilt maker organized her piecework.

Scroll all the way down to see all the photos.


She constructed this as she would have a Bowties
 but then arranged her colors to belie that pattern, so it looks like a Diamond in the Square.

Hand pieced and hand quilted, the quilt is in very good condition.
It is flat and lightweight and would be  
great on a wall.

Price:  $295
