This quilt was made by Etta Metott Weaver, the current owner's great-grandmother, in the 1950s. You can see another of her quilts in a post called A Complete Makeover.
Here are some of the lovely fabrics that Etta chose.
scattered flowers in one of the blocks, plus a regular floral print in the alternate squares
a printed plaid
very typical 1950s print styles and colors
And then, there are conversation prints. Conversation prints are prints that feature objects instead of geometrics or flowers. I've been highlighting quilts with conversation prints in several previous posts.
faux patchwork, and kittens
tropical fish, parrots and a pineapple, and maybe a salt shaker and pepper grinders?
As a fun little aside: The fabric below is from an Attic Windows quilt that I washed a couple of years ago. It's the same design concept but with different flowers. That quilt has the embroidered date - 1959.
All in all, this quilt is a nice snapshot of fabrics of the 1950s, and a comfortable, cozy quilt.
