mod quilt top

In yesterday's blog, I mentioned finding a mod quilt top at Union Vintage in Beaverton. Well, here it is. I think it was made around 1980, lots of mod fabrics but also some that look new wave. The "argyle" print in four colorways and the floating black squares, also in four colorways, look a bit more new nave than mod. Looks like a deep stash though. A lot of the prints look like 60s and 70s.

The cowboy print is especially fetching. Conversation prints always are, but people love cowboys.

Lots of floral prints, paisleys, mod plaids and even a couple Hawaiian or Polynesian prints.

I love the brown and orange daisy and polka dot circle print. Very hip!

Most of the fabrics are heavier weight than the typical quilt fabrics. They are almost more like decorator or upholstery fabrics.

The top is 85" x 102" and in perfect condition. No plans for it. I just couldn't resist. It was a good deal. If anyone's interested, let me know. First come first serve.

  1. Do you think with the small decorator weight pieces in multiple colorways, that this quilt might be made from a manufacturer's sample book?
