Offering this patriotic WWll quilt made from feedsacks from the 1940's. The quilt is in excellent condition. It was one that was exhibited in the 2010 Houston,Texas International Quilt Festival exhibit, America Collects! The quilt is made from the highly collectible feedsacks called Kents Cloth of the United Nations. There's lots of images depicting the war time. The fabric, feedsacks, was printed by Percy Kent of Buffalo, New York using about 38 wartime symbols. The quilt is tied with red and white floss. For the edge the maker did a knife edge and hand stitched it together in a running stitch. There's a sleeve on the back top edge for displaying it on a wall. It is rare to find an entire large quilt made in that time period using these sacks. Often the single feed sacks are in collections from this particular print. South Carolina
Offering this extraordinary antique quilt top made of cigarette/tobacco flannel premiums. Such a huge collection and sampling of flannel printed blocks all stitched together making a fantastic quilt top. Many of the flannels are Indian patterns and several flags, about 60, making up the center panel. Some of the patterns symbolize Indian blankets and Oriental rugs with wonderful geometric patterns. There's a few, about 5 or so blocks near the bottom edge that have some bleeding of color. Otherwise the condition is excellent. There's approximately 235 blocks or flannels in all making up the top. A true piece of Americana and one so many collectors can enjoy and add to several categories of collecting. Massachusetts.

This visual Tumbling Blocks or Baby Blocks vintage quilt top is in excellent condition. It is all hand pieced. Made with strong solids of red, white and blue fabrics that appear to be circa 1940's. It also has a triple border of the 3 colors. Sometimes solids can be harder to date, but feel this is probably a World War II quilt. This is one of the pieces that were exhibited in the America Collects-Patriotic Quilts in Houston, Tx. 2010 that came out of my collection. The top was board mounted and displayed well. It's a nice top to keep as is or can be quilted. Acquired in New Mexico.

It is hand quilted at 7-8 spi and the applique is done by both hand and machine.The way the eagles are placed makes it a good wall quilt as they are all directional and also looks great on a bed. This was one of the quilts on display at the International Quilt Festival , 2010, in the exhibit America Collects- Patriotic Quilts, from my collection. Love the way the maker did the curved/wavey borders and the central pattern. Colors of red, cheddar and fugitive green. For the binding the back was brought forward to the front and machine stitched down. Great to add to a collection. Eagle quilts are sometimes hard to find. Massachusetts
This is a great unusual painted flowers state quilt, as the painting is done on the black brushed cotten fabric and it has a wonderful silk sashing of red, white and blue. The state flowers are painted in each of the blocks and it has the name of the state. I didn't check to be sure each flower correlated with each state! The condition is very good with a few slight splits on the binding edge, one image shows a corner. I have seen state flower quilts, but never one done on black ground and sashed like this. The blocks are machine top stitched and there is not really any quilting , but it is backed in a soft lavender/plum silky fabric. Displays well and is an excellent quilt for a collection. Acquired back East, but was told came from Texas.
This Lone Star quilt of colors of red, white and blue on an off white ground is a wonderful quilt to hang or display on a bed. Excellent condition. Hand quilted in a fan pattern. Quilted by hand at 6 spi. Bound with the back turned to the front and stitched down by machine. This is probably a Robert Frank pattern of precut fabrics, the Robert Frank Needlework Company from Kalamazoo, Mi. This company sold die cut diamonds in red, white and blue fabrics to make stars quilts. Nice quilt to add to collection. This quilt is one from my collection that was exhibited at International Quilt Festival in Houston, Texas- 2010 in the America Collects-Patriotic Quilts exhibit. It has also been exhibited at the American Quilters Show in Nashville, Tn in 2000.
