Mod Satin Quilt Top, c. 1960, Iowa

This mod satin quilt top came from an eBay seller in Marshalltown, Iowa. It is 80" x 80", all satin in rich, solid colors, and it is edge finished with a binding but not backed. According to the seller, it came from an estate sale of a couple, and it was handed down to the wife on her wedding day. The couple was married for more than 50 years. There was no other information available. I love the shimmering fabrics, the bright colors, and the simple, modern design. Maybe I should hang it on the wall.


  1. Lovely. You are a lucky man.

  2. What an interesting story and yes, those colors are wonderful!!!
