HI Y'all!! Hope everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving had a wonderful one. I have been cooking and cleaning, no quilting so far, but a lot of scheming and thinking about quilts! Above is an antique quilt top I bought at the Dallas Quilt show. It was in a pile of tops, being shoved around...I had to rescue it. The tag said from 1860's. Please tell me...what do you think? Do you really think it could possibly be that old?
Double pinks, just like our current day reproductions.
A maverick block!!
and another maverick
Most of the blocks are pink, like this one. Does anyone know the name of this block?
All hand pieced...someone took lots of time with this! Wonderful if she had electric lights...hmmm, how fortunate we are!
Hope you enjoyed seeing my little old quilt top, and if you can tell me any information, I would so appreciate you!! Or if you like it..shout out!!
Have a super day,
