The varied 'sweetheart' pillow faces included in this unusual quilt top come from the P X stores at various military bases. Typically they were brought home by servicemen as gifts for their sweethearts, mothers, sisters; each is printed with a sentiment. a post location, and different floral motifs. Ready  to finish with a backing if you want to use it as a bed quilt. Nicely bordered with mitred corners, this one is easy to mount for display as a loving hallmark of that era in history. Such pillow faces are the subject of a book just published by Pat Cummings.
