Back to my favorite thrift store, but there is not much except this, made of non-traditional fabric, including polyester blends and a little double knit. [When will quilts with double knit fabrics become collectible? Now there’s a question.] Constructed in the strippy style, there is no filler and the back is pieced from different pieces of cotton flannel fabric. I know the piece in the center is from an old flannel sheet, because I can see where the top edging has been undone to add a few more inches of fabric. This was made by a thrifty person. Tied with poly yarn at regular intervals, and the edges are machine-sewn. Made in the 70’s or 80’s perhaps?
I purchased this as throw to keep in the hall closet near the living room. I have stocked that closet with Polartec –style blankets that are so soft and cuddly, but 3 in a row have ended up on my son’s bed. I guess because they are soft and cuddly. I think this will stay in the closet, to be used when I am taking a quick nap on the couch. I like it. It is plain but not ugly, clean and in good shape.

Note added later: This is ONE quilt - the front and the back are shown. Yes the flannel is cozy!
