Here is a pretty pink quilt dating from the Depression era (ca. 1930-1950) that would brighten up any room. The pattern, Dresden Plate, is both pieced (the "plates") and then appliquéd. The long seams were machine stitched; all other work on this quilt was done by hand. Quilting is plain yet elegantly done with perfectly straight lines and 8-9 stitches per inch (average is 6-7 stitches per inch). This quilt was an excellent one to make if you had an extensive scrap bag of pretty prints. There are aren't many repeats here, yet the colors of the plates are pleasing and well-balanced. This quilt is 100% cotton, machine washable, and dry-able in the dryer. It is clean, recently washed. The quilt has been used very little; the pencil lines used to draw the quilting lines are still visible. The size is 66" X 86," a twin. Yet it can be turned sideways across a full or queen sized bed and trimmed out with pillows. This very traditional quilt was found in Michigan.
