Ralph Lauren-y looking antique quilt pieced of vintage plaids in a patriotic palette. Great organization of myriad random slivers of fabric thanks to the grid sashing with wee corner blocks that crisp up and organize the entire visual effect. Compatible with so many vintage looking fabrics and bedding ticking stripes, plaids, etc., but equally attractive and vital in a modernist interior. String quilts usually combine varied scraps from sewing projects, but this one is distinctive because it contains only pieces of robust plaids, accented with white shards. The clear cheery palette has a good dressmakerly artistic touch because of the white grid that unites the randomly pieced squares, elevating it above the traditional look and format seen with this pattern.
