Vintage Rescue Quilt which was obviously inspired by the Gees Bend folks and their works of art! I couldnt' determine the age of the unfinished top, but I'd say it was probably constructed in the 50's/60's. The unfinished top was in surprisingly great condition with only a couple of small age spots ... not enough to detract from the beauty of this quilt though. This is vintage as-is because of the tiny age spots but it's priced accordingly. It's been washed and fully dried in machines.
It's backed with a fun blue batik. It's soft and crinkly with a very thin bamboo batting to add to the vintage heirloom look.
Measures 52 x 73 inches.

STORY OF VINTAGE RESCUE QUILTS
Following my love of Vintage Quilts and Quilt History, I find and source unfinished vintage quilt tops from various places. I then make any repairs needed to the quilt top, including mending loose seams, replacing disintegrated fabrics, and attending to stains that may be treated. I then pair the quilt with a modern fabric backing and batting and quilt it using my longarm quilting machine. I use no computers on my longarm and everything is done manually by hand. In the end, these unfinished quilts from long ago are transformed into quilts that are totally amazing, stunning, and, well, beautiful! Sometimes I'm so struck by a quilt's transformation! It is an honor to bring these beauties into the future and finally give them the ability to be used and loved!
❀ wash cold, gentle cycle, mild soap and dry in a normal drier on low to medium or lay flat or hang to dry. Do not hang in direct sunlight to dry.
