    Found on a bed in a house clearance.

    Ton Surton, Honeymoon or Vacation.
    The American Dream.
    Is it worth selling or for the pet bed.?

    It's Ton Sur Ton, a French phrase meaning "in matching shades" or "tone on tone."

    A LOT of work went into the making of it, VERY nice .. I'd suggest trying to sell it before giving it to the dogs .. even though they're cute as can be :) ... Joy.

    Given your location, doubt it's an American quilt, looks like someone's memory/scrap quilt done in the English paper piecing method (not that isn't done here, have done it myself) - Ton Sur Ton was a 1980s American clothing label with French roots, that patch is cut from some, apparently knit, clothing item...

    It's a hexagon quilt.

    I agree with Joy to offer it for sale.

    Make sense.
    Its from a well travelled family home, I thought it was a trade mark tag on the corner patch.
    I`ll take it to the next boot fair and see what happens .

    Interesting mix of fabrics, those quilted patches are different - seem to recall having a little black silk quilted jacket in the '80s. Has a sort of 'Boho' look to it, guessing it will sell...

    Rotten scoundrels, they always manage to screw stuff up! If you click on the highlighted 'listing' in the blue bar at the top of replacement listing, it will take you to the original.

    The blue bar didn't work for me, but you provided the listing.

    Lots of time went into that quilt!!

    Definitely NOT a dog blanket, unless it's a very pampered pooch. It's not a quilt pattern I've ever been crazy enough to try.
