Quirky Old Quilt #5

I bought this quilt top many years ago when I was a new bee to the collecting world.  At the time I thought since it was all machine pieced that I would machine quilt it and it would be a (relatively) quick finish!  Well now some 15 years later it is still a top! HA!  Best layed plans....
Lots of large scraps organized into long bars top to bottom, all machine sewn, very practical! 
It's got lots of  great '40's - '50's printed fabs and some bark cloth, ginghams and even a few flannels.

I've always wondered about these two machine appliquéd circles in the center?!  His and hers,  mom and dad,  newly weds?  or just to random patches?!

Here's a peek at the back, nice tidy seams!
A very cheerful quirky old quilt top!
Happy Sunday!
Cheers, CW
