This jacket is made from a mid century Dresden Plate quilt. The Dresden Plate pattern was the most popular quilt pattern made in the 1920s. This one was made in the late 1930's in McKeesport, Pennsylvania as a family quilt. It was commissioned by a local custom quilter for the Redding's, and it's bright colors were representative of this family's shining demeanor.
More representative of a flower than a plate, the typical design features circles made of "petals" with a pointed design. Aster, Dahlia, Sunflower, Friendship Ring, and Grandmother’s Sunburst are other names of the pattern, all of which coincide with the floral appearance.
