Putrid Polyester

Putrid Polyester
Entrant #696-969 named her first quilt Putrid Polyester. The judges, having agreed that the title was certainly appropriate, marveled at the variety of color and texture of polyester double knit available back in 1974.

Although making for a HEAVY quilt, it did allow the maker to appliqué the large glandular shapes preceding the borders without turning under any seam allowance and sewing a full ½" from the edge. They are sure not to unravel and the flapping is a nice touch.

The entrant from Lake Luzerne, NY wrote, “…I had never made a quilt of any type, nor knew anything about them!” This explained a lot, but the judges are still in the dark as to the meaning of the large X and the letters L, E, I, and U in the center of the quilt. Vowels?
