Busy last week taking apart some large , heavy, very damaged quilts . Truly, they were taking up more room than I could afford.
A spectacular, bold, wool, tied star, I love the strip pieced diamond borders. I have not decided what to do with the top, to try and sell 'as is' or to remove some more manageable blocks. It is about 90" square.
The back was a turkey red calico print...looks a bit pink here and I must work on a color photo before I can sell it.
A pile of rescued pieces awaiting their new life.
More to come.......
A few weeks ago I posted as I was starting to unpick this and mentioned that I thought a mans shirt was coming out of the center. Turns out to be a 1930s cotton dress, very worn, faded and patched in several places. Even my 16 year old granddaughter found it quite touching ( and a good reality check)
