|crib quilt, cottons, unknown maker, Hawaii, c. 1995, 36" x 36"|
I can tell this piece is a little newer than a lot of the others. There are more cottons and no DayGlo, but the fabrics do not look pre DayGlo. They look much more recent than that. I love the red and white print with the figures. It looks tribal.
Looking at the borders, especially the blue border, you can tell it is made of scraps. Each side of the blue border is made of multiple pieces. Nobody cut up a usable shirt to make this quilt. It's made from the leftovers, and the scraps were new when the quilt was made.
The quilt is essentially a framed 16-patch block, and I love the random placement of prints. It is carefree, casual and easy-- a happy little thing.
