SOLD 1930s “Trip Around the World” Quilt,” Like New!


Not only does this lovely summer quilt feature one of my favorite patterns, it’s made from 1920s and 1930s feed and flour sack fabric — and apparently it’s never been used, never been laundered because it’s just as crisp and fresh as the day it was made.

The Trip Around the World pattern is entirely hand pieced from more than a thousand 1-1/4” X 1-1/2” “squares.” And, as the photos show, f or added interest, the maker has used one piece of fabric just once — a tactic known as “poison” in some quarters and “humility” in others. The quilt is bordered by three complementary patterns, and bound by the cotton backing.

Almost a perfect square, it measures 72-1/2” X 71-1/2” and is in excellent condition. From a Texas collector who’s kept it in storage for years.
