Lynette Anderson's Christmas Fun month 5 finished, the next one will be here soon!
After a visit to Bay of Islands/Pahia last weekend I found this old 1930's beauty from a antique store.It hails from America. No label unfortunately. It has a white muslin backing and cotton batting and all hand pieced and hand quilted.
I like this one flower with the black fraying fabric.
I will need to give it a wash....very gently of course!
I think I am in love !!!! I have a real appreciation for English paper pieced quilts and they make me smile.
Who made this quilt? Was she/he a happy content person? Was the maker new to patchwork or a seasoned quilter? Was the maker a mother,father, daughter,lover, friend? What ever this makers story was I am so happy she/he made it :-)
