AFRICAN AMERICAN ZIPPER ANTIQUE QUILT
   

 



Tennessee sisters who worked for a clothing factory that  made work clothes and uniforms of cotton twill fashioned this quilt from workroom scraps. I have a photo of them, from Hardin, TN, c 1940s So modern in its design, achieved by orchestrating narrow rectangular strips of three uniform colors.
