Change Author / Owner : Quilt made from gray, black, brown, blue, and red suiting samples
A tied quilt made from suiting fabrics in muted tones of gray, black, brown, blue, and red machine sewn together. The pieces are all of uniform rectangular size, suggesting they are from a salesman's sample or swatch book. The quilt is backed with a gray and cream striped wool cotton blend fabric that is turned over at the edges and then sewn around the turned edges of the top. There is no additional border or binding. There is no batting between the pieced top and the backing fabric. The top and backing are attached with red yarn ties placed at the center and the corners of each block on the top.
