All of these pretty quilt squares were painted with a liquid tube paint called Tri-Chem. They were done as instructive pieces during Tri-Chem parties in the late 1960’s where the representative would show how easy it was to create beautiful art on fabric with paint in a tube with a roller-ball tip (I attended some of these parties). There are 9 different flowers each on a piece of sheer white linen with pinked edges. Even after more than forty years the colors are vibrant and they would be nice accents to a pieced quilt. The designs include an iris, acorns with oak leaves, a hibiscus, pinecones, and a tulip besides others.
They vary slightly in size with the smallest one (the orange rose) being about 7” by 7 ½” and the largest (the yellow hibiscus) measuring about 7 ½” by 9”. They are in generally good condition with bright colors and minimal soiling however it appears they were attached to a piece of paper at some time with a spot of glue in the upper corners of most of them. I have not tried to clean the glue off.
Priced and sold as the group.
