World War ll Feedsack Quilt-Kents-United Nations -SOLD

(Item: Q-816)

Offering this patriotic WWll quilt made from feedsacks from the 1940's. The quilt is in excellent condition. It was one that was exhibited in the 2010 Houston,Texas International Quilt Festival exhibit, America Collects! The quilt is made from the highly collectible feedsacks called Kents Cloth of the United Nations.  There's lots of images depicting the war time. The fabric, feedsacks, was printed by Percy Kent of Buffalo, New York using about  38 wartime symbols.  The quilt is tied with red and white floss. For the edge the maker did a knife edge and hand stitched it together in a running stitch. There's a sleeve on the back top edge for displaying it on a wall. It is rare to find an entire large quilt made in that time period using these sacks. Often the single feed sacks are in collections from this particular print. South Carolina

Circa:  1940's
