This is an old quilt which has been sitting in a closet for years, collecting dust. It is all done by hand, I believe by my grandmother, possibly in the 1930s or 1940s. I can't use it as a bed cover, since I am allergic to dust mites and all our bedding has to be washed every week --- it would be rags in a few months. I was planning to cut off a small piece as a keepsake and throw the rest away, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. It is all stitched by hand!
I am thinking about putting it up on eBay; it would make a very nice wall hanging for someone who likes shabby chic decor.
