Primitive or Utility Quilt
My dear hubby went to an auction the other week and brought me home a quilt. It is what my Grandma and Mom would can utility. It does have a touch of art to it with the embroidered seams. Perhaps today it would be considered primitive. Upon close inspection I found the "batting" used was another quilt. You can see it peeking through a few places that are worn or frazzled. Each seam of the patchwork is embroidered with what I believe is the herringbone stitch. The quilt is also hand quilted. The quilting from the back view reminds me of Mom and her sisters. They often used plates to mark the circular lines for quilting in this style.Don't forget to click photos for larger viewing. Drop by Coloradolady for more vintage Thursday participants.
