Here's another old quilt I originally found at the Recycling Centre, sometime last year. It's quite rustic, probably made in the 70s, with different-sized blocks of bright red and blue fabrics. Some of the blocks have seams running in unusual directions through them, so I think a lot of old clothes were recycled for the quilt top.
It was probably intended as a picnic rug or throw, as there is no quilting on the top and the back is a sturdy kind of upholstery fabric. But I like it enough to have it over a couch in the living room. Plus, I think it feels right at home next to our bright red fireplace.
Here are some of my favourite bits of it:
