I've made a good dent in cleaning things out of our house. Now I've moved to the basement where many quilts are stored. I am finding ones I have not show you yet. Here's one.
|Where block corners meet|
The pieces really are small - larger pieces measure only 5" x 3". I think you can see the quilt was assembled in blocks - they measure 10" - 11" square. The entire quilt measures 62" x 62". I do think the current back (a quilted synthetic fabric) was added later. The edges of it come forward to make the binding, roughly stitched in place using a feather stitch. It is tacked to the new backing through all the pieces in just a few spots.
Some of the wool is shattered, leaving only the stitching at the edges. And notice how the use of black gives the quilt some nice drama and depth. Wich I knew the story on this one.
