Whats this?

This pretty.tied,  1930s comforter was going no where, so I decided to unpick it and try to sell the fabric.

A shame and a bit of a fiddle as it  was closely tied and neatly finished. I thought there might have been an old wool blanket inside,

but, whats this? A nice antique quilt, albeit in VERY cutter condition, with the edges in tatters.

    Oh, that's a beauty! I love the faded blues. I have read about this practice of using an old quilt as batting for a newer one but have never come across it myself!

    1. A lot of quilts pass through my hands, this is not the first time!

  2. The rose fabric is very pretty - very Cath Kidstonish.

  3. What a lovely surprise to find inside! Goes back to the true quilters creed - made do with what you have.

  4. Perhaps I can cut it down and rebind,but its so bloody hot I dont feel like doing anything much

  5. Thanks for sharing, nice post! Post really provice useful information!
