|"Neutralicious" One Patch Quilt, c. 1970, North Carolina, 63" x 92"|
The quilt is 63" x 92", machine pieced and hand quilted in the ditch, with hand zigzag / feather-stitching done in a beige yarn over the seams. There is a nice mix of fabrics, including polyester double knit and cotton jersey. The backing is brought to the front for binding, which is an inch wide, and machine stitched down. Back fabric is one of those "sweet little calicoes" - otherwise known as a small-scale floral print - in a coordinating, earthy tone.
