Every once in a while, I am lucky when someone brings in an old quilt. I just love looking at the old fabrics, seeing the blocks that were pieced together with scraps just to make it all work. I often think about all the time and work that went in to not only the hand sewing, but the cutting of all those bits of fabric.
This quilt was in a bit of disrepair when I first saw it a few months ago. Quite a few of the fabrics were disintegrating and torn. But this quilter wanted to rescue what she had and preserve it. So we chose a few new fabrics for her to use. Can you see them in this above picture? If you know the fabric that I have in my shop, you should be able to recognize them, there are two here.
The quilt label reads:
Dulcia Gould Harris
New Burnside, Illinois
I think she did a fantastic job! And thank you to all of you that share your treasures with me, they are always inspiring.
