Vintage hand-pieced polyester quilt top / topper made with colorful squares of fabric set on a diagonal in the GRANDMOTHER'S PRIDE pattern (c. 1960's). We've been informed that this pattern is called "Grandmother's Pride" though some have called it "Domino and Square".
This vintage king-size quilt top was made by my aunt during her sewing/quilting period of the mid 1950's - early 1970's. This hand-made quilt top has been stored in a dresser drawer for at least 18 years- since her death. With a bit of creative quilt finishing, this handmade quilt top could be finished as a "puffy quilt", "pillow quilt" or "biscuit quilt". Biscuit or puff quits have been around for some time and were popular during the Victorian era. Quilt historian, Barbara Brackman, notes a biscuit quilt pattern published in the Ohio Farmer in 1896. These quilts date back to the 19th century and were very popular in the late 1960's until the early 1970's. http://www.womenfolk.com/quilt_pattern_history/biscuit-quilt.htm
