I found this quilt when I was wandering through our local antique mall about 2 years ago. The top is pieced with what we used to call wide-wale corduroy. There are just a few colors used: 3 shades of blue, 3 shades of rose, and 2 shades of lilac.
The quiltmaker planned this quilt. The middle pieced medallion is surrounded by rows of squares in squares. Scrappy piecing makes an outer border.
This quilt is tied with the same gold thread used to decoratively stitch along the top.
Once again, a few open seams allow me to peek at what is inside. It's a woven blanket.
This quilt measures 61" x 78". It is so heavy I hesitated to hang it up. Would the bar hold on my quilt rack? It did.

I have never seen a quilt made with corduroy. I can well imagine that it weighs a lot!ReplyDelete

This is made from chenille, the French word for caterpillar, is typically used to describe a type of fabric.ReplyDelete
