Yesterday I dropped off a rack full of clothing at Men's Wearhouse for their National Suit Drive. The charity benefits at-risk men transitioning into the workforce, and Men's Wearhouse officially holds the event in the summer, but they accept donations all year. Thank goodness for that! I'm working on cleaning out a closet full of clothing meant for a much larger man, formerly me.

I also wasn't sure if I was looking at a mass-produced object or a homemade one. It's nicely finished, but something tells me it's homemade.
It is 66" x 87 & 1/2" and was made of two pieces of fabric. The seam is off-center, and the fabrics do not line up along the seam, evident in the third dark brown band from the right.
This piece will go with the Hawaiian group. Although it is not a scrap quilt, it's another type of bedcover from the period, and it shows off large pieces of Hawaiian fabric. I love the green fringe.
