|Sorry about the lighting, which seems to seriously mute all the colors!|
This top was made back in the early 80's when I was trading 5" and 1-1/2" squares, so it is a real archive of vintage fabrics, some of which are from the 40's, 50's, 60's, and 70's.
I have to admit, I miss the old days when we traded fabrics via the mail. The trades in which I was involved required ten different 5" squares of fabric and it was a wonderful way to stretch your collection when making charm quilts. This quilt qualifies as a charm quilt because every fabric is different.
The center part of the quilt contains 964 different fabrics and the border has 43, so over one thousand different fabrics!
