The Vintage Quilt

Hello Teri, in answer to your email. This is a Vintage Quilt, from the late 1940's early '50's. It came as a pre-printed white whole cloth quilting design. The appliques were sent as patterns with colorways to be chosen by the Quilter. The work is exquisite and it was gifted to me by a family member at Christmas. The maker was her paternal Grandmother. As far as I know the pattern is no longer available but I am not sure of the source. I believe it was from a local newspaper, now defunct.  Hope that answers your question.
