It was listed as a 1950s quilt, but I think it may be a little later because of the colors. They just don't seem like 50s colors. There is electric blue, cerulean blue, lime green, and hot orange. If the fabrics were scraps leftover from clothing, or even repurposed clothing, I have to ask myself, "when would people have worn those fabrics, and when would they use the scraps to make a quilt?" Maybe five or ten years after they were popular in clothing?
These colors, and the combination of colors, suggests the psychedelic or post psychedelic era to me. Considering the fabrics likely served other purposes first, and the idea of making a quilt out of them was likely to occur later, I feel a reasonable circa date for the quilt is 1970.
So what do you think? Did I hit the nail on the head? Or am I out of my mind? What circa date would you put on it, and why?
