Flea Mall find
We stopped at a Flea Mall near Birmingham, Alabama where I found this sweet summer spread. The edges are finished but the quilt has no backing or batting.
The block pattern is odd but repeated faithfully - I'm eager to see if it is in the Encyclopedia of Pieced Patterns. Many of the pieces are patched together. The fabrics run the gamut - a few conversation prints, several synthetics, some seersucker binding and vintage cottons.
Best of all: it is hand pieced with sturdy string. I'll be repairing a few pulled apart seams as we head north.
