This is a quilt top made by my Grandmother many years ago. I have tried to figure out how old it is, but I can't be sure. My grandmother died almost 30 years ago and probably made this quilt top 30 or 40 years before she died, but I'm just not sure. I was wondering if anyone who has an eye for these things could give me any idea how old it might be by looking at the kind of fabrics used. The fabric may be feed sacks.
This is a picture of the whole quilt top on a bed.
These are close ups of some of the fabric. Can you see the little Chinese men?
I've decided to hand quilt this quilt top in my quilting frame. It will be an interesting shopping trip to find matching backing fabric, I'm sure! I am adding this project to my 2009 Sewing To Do List.
