Excellent Condition

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Confetti !

Don't we wish we knew the story of this remarkable quilt, and its maker?   Just
who might s/he have been? 

Gazillions of pieces, all of them cotton. S/he had a vast array of 1930s and
'40s scraps of printed cottons.  And  ... s/he had some strong
solid-color pieces to scatter about.
 
Excellent Condition with no holes or worn or wearing fabrics. 

The quilt could use a bath.  It is not dirty, dirty, but needs freshening.  Normally I'd hand wash it. But the batt, plus all those seams, result in a moderately
heavy quilt, and I decided against washing it because it's a bit unwieldy for me.

The back is a cotton flannel.  Hand quilted in the Fan or Clamshell design. 

That design ~ what a concept!
