OCEAN WAVES PASTEL FEEDSACKS ANTIQUE PIECED QUILT


 
OCEAN WAVES PASTEL FEEDSACKS  ANTIQUE PIECED QUILT
   

 



A harmonious and visually pleasing combination of early 20th century feedsack and dress prints. All these fabric scraps together are a universally appealing visual variation from a pattern seen more often in the century before that  were pieced with just one deep solid color against white. The hourglass shape intersections repeat a soft pink echoed in many of the prints included. I am intrigued by the placement of the piecing in the diamond grid, which reads differently from other Ocean Waves patterns. Perhaps it was the alternation with solid white traingles in the grid, but it is almost as if the print triangles are placed in a different direction. A skilled quiltmaker would be able to decipher how this was achieved.
