Lately I've wanted a few brighter southern quilts and today I got a couple!
They came from an estate of two sisters in North Carolina. They look as if they were made by the same person. Both of the sisters, who lived well into their 90's, were quilters so it is hard to say who made these. (the orange is the same fabric in both...it just photographs differently due to the fabrics around it.)
The colors in both are very bright. The red and yellow triangles seem to be from an earlier time period than the orange and shirting used as sashing and cornerstones. The quilting is large but even. Binding is back to front (see that a lot in southern quilts.)
The red wedding ring fits my bright requirement (plus I did not have a wedding ring quilt and so it fills that hole in the collection.)
The quilting on this is also large stitch. It looks as if the quilter used a variegated thread for the quilting!
Since I had only seen photos of these when I bought them I was very happy to find they are in good condition and very clean. A couple of days airing out on the porch and they will be fine!
