My latest find~
I got this quilt at an estate sale last weekend
for next to nothing because near the edges
it has some overly loved areas.
I actually set it down
then picked it back up again.
It just spoke to me.
It is all hand stitched,
has an interesting pattern,
and a variety of quilting designs.
If you look closely,
it looks as though the rectangle pieces
were at one time a pinkish color
and the diamonds on either side of the yellow
were perhaps a green.
The focus blocks are all quilted the same,
but the solid white or 'open' blocks
are quilted with grids and scallops.
In some of the overly loved parts,
there is some machine stitching and
maybe 'extra' binding stitched on
for good measure to repair it.
Some of the seams appear a little darker
because there was a peacock-blueish
color thread used to piece parts of it.
All of this said ~ I have no idea how old it is.
If you can help me,
please do so.
I would love to know more.
Until next time,
