|pieced quilt, polyester, unknown maker, Kansas, c. 1975, 72" x 86"|
Every once in a while, collectors will trade quilts. This wonderful polyester quilt came from Marjorie Childress, who got it from a seller in Kansas. I had one she liked, so we traded. It was a good trade.
I love how the block looks like a sun rising over a mountain. It has to be the sun rising since it's yellow. Wouldn't it be orange if it was setting?
Almost everything about the quilt is polyester, the top and back fabric, the binding and the batting. The yarn ties are either wool or acrylic.
Polyester quilts do not always have polyester backing fabric, so that was a fun detail. The brown polyester coordinates with the brown fabric in the top. Just three colors, but so much impact! I love it. Thanks, Marjorie!
