Do not ask me how I am lucky enough to have found another gorgeous quilt this year. I will not be able to tell you the answer. We just seem to keep finding each other.
I wish I could find a time of day to get a better photo of the whole quilt for you.
Look at all the gorgeous little prints.
Pink and greens
And purples and blues
and red and white.
This one is in amazing condition. It seems like it has never been washed. No real stains to note, only one or two open seams.
But it is a bit of a mystery.
It was quilted with a machine zig zag stitch. The fabrics seem 1930/1940 to me, with no hint of the 1950's, but machine zig zagging is a late 1950's/early 1960's invention for the home sewer as far as I understand it.
Maybe it was just quilted many years later?
We all know how easily that can happen. :-)
