Lovely patchwork quilt from Guatemala. It is 94" x 81". It is put together with vintage ladies huipils. The Huipils are traditional tops or blouses that are hand woven by the Mayan woman on back strap looms. An old hand woven garment that has taken months to weave is never thrown away. They utilize every scrap from “cortes” & “huipils “ into creating this type of quilt or other wonderful items.

Here they have taken the huipils scraps of fabric and put them together with hand woven contrasting navy blue cotton fabric. The construction is new but the bit of fabric are old.

The backing is a medium wt black fabric that I assume is cotton as well.

One one side are loops sewn in in order to hang it. I purchased it directly from the family who made it in a market town called Chichicastenango in the highlands of Guatemala. The indigenous people in that area are known as Quiche. Lovely patchwork quilt from Guatemala. It is put together with vintage ladies huipils.
