A delightful lightweight 1930s quilt, nearly all printed feed-sacks, with a wee print backing, in my favorite block. Log Cabin.
The edges were a bit frayed, so I decided to unpick the knife edge and turn the back print to the front to bind.
Nearly all hand pieced, the batting is partly a very threadbare pink damask cloth or spread that had itself been patched. I also spy some bits of curtain lining, Nicely, but sparsely hand quilted in baptist fans, perhaps our maker could not afford more thread, its obvious she did not mind the work.
I have not done a very good job, I wish I had
a...tacked a protective binding around the edge or
b...redone a knife edge, though the original was finely stitched or
c...left it alone.
I wonder what story this typical depression era beauty has to tell.
