A rather ordinary,heavy quilt that did not have much going for it but some interesting 1950s fabrics and a large tear.
But what's this? Under the tear it appears there is another old quilt. Is this a piece of 19th century indigo?
Alas, no. After many hours unpicking, a depression era 'grandmothers garden' emerged.
It is in such bad shape that even I can not salvage anything,
except some strips of fabric for re-binding and patching and a big mess on our deck. ( good thing I worked outside)
It breaks my heart to throw it out, I wish I know an artist who would like to use it in a piece of work.
