I got yet another vintage quilt top in the mail. Perhaps I bought it because the colors look like Fall. It is a large top,96″ x 106″. The pattern is called Love ring. This one I can get a pretty good date on. The seller included the magazine pages that the maker got the pattern from. Woman’s Day/March 1976
There is a quilt in the Quilt Index that is nearly Identical
Included in the auction was the matching backing fabric. It is well made and flat so I can hand quilt it any time.
The Fabric is a poly blend as I would expect from 1976. It is all hand pieced. I can see that the maker marked the pieces for cutting with a black pen. Here are a bunch of pictures of the front and back (click pictures to enlarge)
When I pick up a quilt top and the camera and head to the wall to hang it for pictures, Teddy runs ahead of me to make sure he gets his picture too….he thinks it’s his job.
I started to play with the fabrics I wrote about yesterday
More to come about that one
