teacups quilt


Unknown Quilt Maker
Collected in Arizona
70 x 74 inches
Circa 1960

72 Cups of Tea ... and ... Fabric

We love quilts with this kind of whimsical, cartoon-y feel,
with repeated (serial) images based on real objects.

Six dozen wildly different printed cotton cups,
 set within a calming grid composed of solid green and solid peachy pink.

This quilt maker hand appliqued, hand quilted and 
hand embroidered each cup handle.

The back of the quilt is a polyester; the hand quilting very simple.

Recently professionally laundered. 
Excellent Condition.

Wouldn't this be charming and cheery on a wall ~ 
Kid's Room or Tea Room?

Price: $425
