The colors are a bit faded, especially the pink which I suspect was once actually red.
The elements that I find so attractive about this vintage rag quilt are it's scrappiness and randomness. It reminds me of a crazy quilt but without the embroidery. Yet it's still orderly with it's predictable pink diamonds.
Here's a good shot of the hand quilting. Not tiny, perfect stitches but the whole quilt is lovingly covered in hand stitches.
The fabrics include a lot of plaids but also sweet prints like these. Makes me think that maybe this was made in the 1930s or 1940s.
I just adore vintage quilts and truly admire the amount of time and effort that was put into these handmade treasures. This vintage rag quilt is a perfect example of that.
