Antique quilts can be viewed as pieces of textile art. Their graphic, intricate patterns, fantastic use of colors & the skilled needlework of their makers create a piece of artwork. Even thought the quilts had a practical, utilitarian purpose, they also reflect the need for beauty in the lives of the women who made them.

A 1930's quilt in the Wheel of Life pattern. This quilt has a very serene look - lots of chambray blue, light green & white.

This pattern can be attributed to the mail order quilt column in a 1931 issue of the periodical, Country Gentlemen.

Size - 73" x 81".

The Wheel of Life pattern is a variant on the Flower Garden patterns. It consists of large blocks made of 6-sided pieces. The blocks begins w/1 piece, the others form rings of increasing size around it. The paths between the wheels are white. Narrow light green binding. White backing. Thin batting.

Quilting - hand-quilted in a diagonal pattern. 12 stitches per inch.

Condition - the binding is frayed. There are brown stains on the quilt top - some are very light, others are rather dark. I don't know if they would come out. There are a splits on a few of the brown pieces - a couple of brown pieces are missing. Many of the blocks are in good condition. This is a very pretty quilt & large - however, it is timeworn.
