AFRICAN AMERICAN WOOL SUITING PIECED BARS VINTAGE QUILT


 
AFRICAN AMERICAN WOOL SUITING PIECED BARS VINTAGE QUILT
   

 



A combination of two types of geometric pieces of menswear wool suiting fabrics creates a dynamic graphic. Alternating pieced bars of squares and of narrower rectangles are  simple geometric shapes that together produce a strong visual result. Made of scraps either from tailoring, or obtained from a fabric manufacturer or tailor, the suiting scraps provide great warmth if one chooses to use this as originally intended. However, a sophisticated nearly monochromatic palette would make a striking wall display piece also.
