A few weeks ago I stopped in at a local Goodwill. This particular store is on the small side and it's hit-or-miss, with the emphasis on MISS. I've made a few good finds there but they're infrequent so I don't stop in often. This particular day I needed a thrift fix and happened to be in the neighborhood. While inside I found a bag of what looked like fabric scraps. The fabric was tightly folded together and the bag was stapled shut so I couldn't even manipulate it around to get a better look, but I thought that maybe I glimpsed some vintage fabric. It was price $5.99 which is pretty high for a bunch of random fabric scraps, but I had a feeling about it so I bought it anyway.
When I got it home and finally unfolded everything, this is what I found:
There are more than 20 squares, each in a simple 9-block pattern.
I'm guessing it was a scrap quilt and the maker was a pretty inexperienced sewer. The stitching isn't great and many of the squares have rather...creative patterns. You can see that they don't all match and the colors are kind of wacky.
Tune in tomorrow for the continuation of my post about the 1940s Ball!
