I received some OLD quilt pieces today.
Most of the blocks were already joined in rows.
WHy...oh why....did this quilt maker STOP???
(Maybe because she was HANDPIECING!!!) :0
I came home and went to work.
It didn't take TOO long to piece it all together.
Looks like I need to go back and fix that bottom left block.
Touching an old quilt, is to ME, like touching HISTORY.
Maybe people interested in old books feel that way too.
Those who collect coins....etc...
After getting it all together...
I washed it GENTLY...
and laid it out in the sun to dry!
What a treasure!!!
I just LOVE touching history!
I linked this post over at a Elizabeth's today! ;)
She likes Vintage quilts!
