From the vintage years of the early 1920’s, perhaps somewhat earlier, an unfinished quilt top made mostly of shirting fabrics of the day. It is a great study piece, if for nothing else, of the type of fabric used mainly for men’s shirts. Note: the printed fabric of stripes with shiny thread weave ~ it is my understanding this type can date from the 1890’s to the 1920’s.
Aside from the study of the fabric, the top has visual eye appeal from the relationship of soft colors plus pattern layout. Forming the center is a large diamond shape motif made of small squares and rectangles fitted together.
