Highlights from the 70’s Quilting Book

by This is Carrie on October 4, 2008

First, the number of patterns incorporated into this room is ridiculous. And the shag carpet is crazy, but I am loving the idea of a pillow quilt.

This patchwork curtain is just plain awesome.
And these quilt squares are perfect for the fronts of a few t-shirts.

I think I may have been born in the wrong decade.

pages from Better Homes & Gardens Patchwork & Quilting circa 1976

I want to sleep on that bed. And that shower curtain needs to be in my bathroom. I want one!

In the 70’s, the quilts were mostly SUPER puffy with big fat polyester batting! These days it’s all low-loft natural fibers.

You would get tired of the 70’s pretty soon, I promise.

I got that AWESOMELY PERFECT button today! OMG! Thank you!
