Another Lovely Vintage Quilt

Here is another vintage quilt from Sisters. Of course, I love red, white and blue and the zig zag setting is really great. But what really blew me away......


Was the backing! The man told us it was French. I think it is so charming!
I'm sure I would never have been so bold to put this on the back of a quilt. I think that's why I love it so much. It's unexpected!

  6. A beautiful quilt and the backing is very unusual, you'd think they would have used that lovely fabric for another quilt.

  7. What a beautiful and unusual fabric on the back! I would love to know the story of how that elegant French fabric got on the back of the pretty yet utilitarian quilt. Maybe the quilt was finished at a later date. Louise

  8. That is one wild backing print. Can you imagine wearing a house dress or apron done in those colors. Love the front also.
