Pennant and Flag Quilt

Probably Missouri

Wool, cotton

Graphic quilt composed of a variety of college pennants, state, and national flags and printed advertising textiles. Flags from Kentucky, Missouri, Illinois, Harvard, and Geo. Washington are prominently featured. It would look stunning draped over a sofa.  Professionally mounted by Kathy Wilson of Point Pleasant, Pennsylvania.


WHY WE LOVE IT: With statements scattered around like “Ain’t it hell to be poor” and “What’s the Use, Kid”, this quilt has something charming at every turn.
