Yesterday, this 36 Patch quilt arrived on my doorstep. It came from an eBay seller in Texas, and it's all double-knit polyester. I believe it was made in the 1970s, but it appears to have some earlier fabrics from the 60s and even the 50s.
The quilt is tied and includes 16 blocks with 36 patches, plus four additional half-blocks along the top edge. It has a nice variety of prints and solids, strong colors and soft. There are floral prints, geometrics, plaids, and even some paisley. Very groovy! My friend Siobhan noticed that the quilt seems to have a 3-D / woven effect because of the stretchy, double-knit polyester fabric. A very cool piece, indeed!
