US Postage Stamps & Antique Cars

Stamp Collecting Came Before Quilt Collecting

I recently stumbled upon a quilt that is what I call a Sampler Quilt of US Postage Stamps.  Now I am trying to track down the source of the pattern. Going down such research rabbit holes is what my life is all about. (At least postage stamps are easier to identify since they usually contain the name of the issuing country and sometimes the year, too.)

Does anyone recognize this pattern? 

My guess is that it is either a high-end import or made from a commercial pattern.

Any ideas for the source of this pattern from my readers?

Speaking of antique cars on postage stamps, here is a quilt in my collection with the antique cars as the quilt's sole theme.  It came out of an estate in Berks County, Pennsylvania. Love, love applique!  Still trying to track this pattern source, too. I'm pretty certain it was a commercial pattern, maybe from the 1940s or 50s.

And some detail photos of the three cars.

Thanks for dropping by!

Drop by again sometime!

  1. Hi everyone, I am Sharon. from Poland I want to use this medium to appreciate Dr Ogbeifun the great black magic death spells caster for the successful death spells he cast on someone for me. I contacted him when my husband left me for another woman who uses witchcraft power to take my husband. I was desperately in need of help when I found his contacts online about his genuine powers. I told him my situation and how I wanted the bitch who took my husband gone. He told me not to worry. He cast the death spells ritual on her and the bitch died in her sleep within 24hours. Now my husband is back home and we are living happily. Thank you so much Dr Ogbeifun, You are so real and true. Below is his contacts in case you want to contacts him
