Vintage Diamond Flower Baskets Quilt
by Lubbock Project Linus
Bold diamond flower baskets
This innovative stylized diamond flower basket design is machine-pieced and has large blocks separated by green, resulting in a large zigzag pattern.
With cheerful, very folksy appeal, this 88" x 88" quilt fits nicely on a queen size bed.
This lovely quilt top was one of several vintage tops that were donated to the Lubbock Chapter Project Linus. One of the quilt tops had 1931 embroidered as its date, and it is likely that all of them were from that era. It is also likely that the tops were made locally -- West Texas.
There are many online sites with information about the heritage of quilting in America. Some are excellent, containing well-researched scholarly information, such as The International Quilt Study and Museum at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
Others, such as Block Central's Quilt Directory contain links to many fine sites that pertain not only to the history of quilts, but to other elements of quilting as well.
