Vintage quilt with 50er substances

Vintage Quilt

Size: approx. 210 x 160 cm

Front: 4-patch blocks are sewn in different patterned fabrics.

Among other things, a great one with a Hawaiian girl on water skis! Between the blocks and at the edges, there are stripes of solid-colored yellow cotton fabric.
The back is of grey cotton canvas, just like kantningen. The back is rather faded and uneven colored, which could well indicate that it is made of home colored flour sacks.
