playful polyester patchwork

Two 1970s quilts just arrived from an eBay seller in Clovis, New Mexico. Both are polyester, and both have bright colors and bold, geometric designs. The first is a Four-Patch with mostly pink sashing. It is 72" x 96" and includes some great fabrics. One of my favorites is a strawberry print, but I also love the textured polyester.

The second quilt is a Tumbling Blocks design. It is 80" x 88" and includes a great mix of plaids, prints and solids. The edge finish is unusual with its striped fabric randomly placed along three edges.

They make a nice pair, these two playful polyester quilts. The designs are traditional, but it's fun to see how they looked with the materials and methods of the period.
