One of the quilts given to me in Washington last month was this "vintage" knock off! After closer inspection I'm thinking it is from the 70's. It has cotton batting and no tag. The quilting and binding construction seems to be the giveaway.
I did quite a lot of reading on Tim Latimer's HERE. There is some good info here especially if you plan on opening your wallet for a quilt. This one, along with 4 others was given to me. There isn't anything wrong with having and enjoying a knock-off, there are just too many folks trying to sell them as old or antique. If this one is from the 1970's than it is 30+ years old!
This is the first time I was able to open it up and get a good look. I facetimed with my friend Laurie and that is when we came to the conclusion it was a newer overseas made quilt. It is certainly cheery!
I washed it to try and clean it up a little and it definitely wrinkled a lot.
Here's another view from a distance.
Someone will enjoy this quilt, but it won't be me.
FINAL CALL for the little quilt swap! I'll be drawing names later today.
