BARKCLOTH STRIP BARS VINTAGE PIECED QUILT


 
BARKCLOTH STRIP BARS VINTAGE PIECED QUILT
   

 



Narrow strips of a delightful variety of home furnishings cotton prints from the mid 20th century were combined in a Bars format for this visually compelling quilt. Probably the pieces came either from swatch books that an upholsterer showed clients, or from cutting room remnants after household slipcovers and drapes were made. One look confirms the era dating of this charming quilt. Nostalgic yet modern with a 'fractured' quality to the visual from all the patterns together that makes this example so modern looking too.. A wonderful melange of prints.  this is a wonderful upcycling re-use, becoming a now visually sophisticated quilt. The prints have harmonious tones of rose, green, caramel, etc. that would work with many contemporary interiors. Seeking something distinctive? This is a good choice. Excellent untouched condition
