Wool Pennants Quilt

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

This original piece of textile nostalgia is made of pennants from points of interest primarily in the eastern United States and several in Canada. In addition, pennants from Dartmouth; N.Y.U; Notre Dame and the Coast Guard are included.
Perhaps they were collected during one's travels from Florida to Maine.
Regardless of how they were assembled, they were put together to make a strong graphic statement in terms of color and design.
