vintage quilt monday :: wool suiting patchwork

Welcome back to another Vintage Quilt Monday post. This quilt is a far cry from the beauty that I shared with you last week, right? But I think it has it's own unique beauty as well, if you just take a closer look. This is a simple patchwork quilt, that is actually unfinished, and it's from the group of quilts that was given to me by my step-mother. Either her grandma or great-grandma made this one. 

This quilt is a lap sized blanket that has been made out of squares of wool suiting. There are solids, plaids, and a little bit of everything in this quilt. The wool squares have been sewn together to make a top and it looks like the maker was going to finish it with the pillow case turn method, where you sew the top to the bottom, right sides together, and leave an opening to turn the quilt right side out before quilting. But, for some reason, this quilt was never finished. 

I love how most of the seams are pressed open.

And if you peek on the inside of the quilt, you'll see that the backing was to be this strawberry printed flannel.

Quite an interesting choice for a back, right?

Here's a better shot of the strawberry flannel.

And while this quilt might not be as classically beautiful as some of the other quilts that I've shared with you in this series, I kind of like it's utilitarian feel, and the fact that it was probably made with scraps of old suits. I also love that, since it is unfinished, it gives a peek into how the quiltmaker worked.

Wool and flannel would make one very warm quilt! Are you going to finish it?
