This is a variation on a Half Square Triangle Quilt, I'm calling it Half Rectangle Triangle! Another quilt top that I've never seen before. You will find 288 hand pieced Half Rectangles of various vintage shirting and calicos and other really beautiful, well preserved cottons. Made from an unfinished Vintage quilt top that was in pristine condition when I purchased it, I've paired it with a pretty batik on the back and used a fine weight bamboo/silk batting from Quilters Dream. It's a very lightweight batting and has lovely drape and soft feel.
It is a gorgeous quilt, so unique and bold, lots of crinkle from a wash and full dry in a machine dryer on medium. It's lovely. There are over 600 pieces throughout.
The Quilt measures 53x75 inches, and is a nice size for cuddling. Classified as a Throw Size it would make a great accent on the foot of your bed or on your favorite chair.
❀ Measures 53 x 75 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.
