Antique Quilt by Marczella Szabo
This stunning quilt was made in 1948 by Marczella Szabo for her grand-daughter Norma. Doesn't this look like the modern quilts that you would expect to see in a book like "Material Obsession?" I'll ask the authors of that book to take a look and comment on this post. I love the fabric combinations she chose. And those blue squares on white look very modern to me.
Marczella was a very talented quilter and crocheter, and she was the great-grandmother of Mirja, a quilter and blogger in Michigan. Mirja says the applique is perfect, as is all the hand quilting. You can see more on her blog.
