While scrolling through eBay quilts recently I came across this example of the 1960's-70s genre.
This is the type of quilt being made when I learned to quilt.
Needlework standards were, shall we say, minimal.
Now, I don't mind minimalistic sewing skills and standards. I always admire someone who plows through till the binding is on---despite the personal challenges.
The white back shows the machine quilting, a good 8" apart
It's the design that frightened me. Where did ideas like this come from?
And then in the very same page on the very same day was an auction for this pattern.
