HOUSE ON THE HILL ANTIQUE QUILT


 
HOUSE ON THE HILL ANTIQUE QUILT
   

 



A jaunty  pattern issued  by the       Company in  the 1930s, but infrequently done! One of the very few examples of this pattern that I have ever encountered, one is published in the book 20th Century Quilts. This is also one of the few quilts known to have been created on a chocolate brown background, a brief quilt making trend during that era of which I have had perhaps two or three other pictorial examples. I am trying to find out more about that trend. Generously sized with orange triangles all around that successfully frame and complement the brown gbackground.
