Here is a very traditional Depression-Era (ca. 1930-1950) quilt in the "Double Wedding Ring" design. Many of these quilts were made because they utilized a multitude of printed fabrics; most quilters of the era had an extensive "scrap bag" to draw upon. Many of the prints used in this lovely quilt are very pretty themselves and were obviously carefully chosen. The pink and green junctions and pink border band set off these prints perfectly. The white areas are unbleached muslin. This quilt is in excellent original condition; it has never been used and still shows pencil lines where the quilter drew them for guidance. All work in this quilt is by hand. The quilting is a tight 11-12 stitches per inch; this quilter was a master of her craft. The quilt is 100% cotton and may be washed in the washing machine in cold water and dried in the dryer. The quilt is clean and ready to use on your bed. It measures 72" X 88" and fits a twin bed. It may be turned sideways and laid across a full or queen-sized bed; lots of pillows (as is now fashionable) may be used at the head of the bed. This quilt was found and was probably made in central Indiana.
