Here's the stitching, front and back. Very clever, don't you think? And the brocade on the back is really lovely!
Sadly, this quilt is another survivor of doggie chews. I patched tears and pulled together open seams. The fabrics are mostly rayons; the pattern is bow tie.
The family thinks it came from the Georgia-Florida side of the family. The owner's mom probably had it as a girl in the 1940's, so it possibly was made and given to her by a relative during her childhood in Florida.
