millennium patriotic wholecloth comforter

This patriotic wholecloth comforter was made sometime around the turn of the 21st century. I posted a photo of it on Facebook, and a friend who owned a quilt shop remembers the panel print from the late 1990s, when off-white and tan-aged backgrounds were becoming popular.

When I saw it, the colors didn't seem quite right for the Bicentennial. So, it was fun to receive a comment right away confirming my thought that the print was from the 1990s. The comforter is tied, it is 80" x 92" and it came from a Goodwill in North Carolina through the Goodwill auction site. It can't even be called barely vintage, but the patriotic theme makes it an instant classic.
