|"Flower Power" - All Double Knit Polyester, c. 1970|
Yesterday, Madge Ziegler posted pictures of a double-knit polyester Grandmother's Flower Garden on the Facebook "Quilts-Vintage and Antique" page, and there was something very familiar about its construction. Loosely speaking, it was double-sided, but one side of each hexagon was solid, and the other side looked like each hexagon was folded and stitched together. It looked familiar because I have a double-knit polyester quilt that was constructed the same way (pictured above).

Many thanks to Madge Ziegler for allowing me to use her pictures and information. We both wonder if there are other quilts like this out there in the world. A very interesting technique, which produces an intriguing result. Hope you enjoyed!
