head turner!

This fabulous, 1970s polyester quilt just arrived from an eBay seller in DeBary, Florida, and it's a head-turner. Made with raw-edge machine applique using a zigzag stitch, the child's size quilt includes both print and solid fabrics in a variety of bright colors and pastels.

The quilt is 40" x 51" and in good condition with some minor stains and a couple snags in the polyester. At this point, I have so many 1970s polyester quilts in my collection, it has to be something very unusual or special to turn my head. This one's special. The original, improvisational medallion design looks like a big, fancy bow tied around a colorful gift. of course, I'm thrilled with it.
