Closer look at one of the blocks...
Only guessing that some of these fabrics were from flour sacks, dresses, & calico. These blocks were made sometime during mid to late 1980's. To me the 80's seem like they were just yesterday but, I guess that tells you what era I'm from.
Below is another quilt that we received as a wedding gift from a friend of the family. Her name is Amparo & she is now in her 90's.
Tia Amparito, (we used to call our elders Aunt or Uncle to show respect), gave me this quilt right before we got married. I remember her telling me that this wasn't a real quilt. She had used "cheater fabric" (preprinted fabric). She also said that she would have appliqued a block if she had planned ahead of time. I told her that I appreciated her taking the time to make this hand quilted lovely quilt, which means a lot to me. It is made with fat batting & I love it because it is soft & warm to use.

Stay tuned, more vintage quilts in a couple of days or so.
