Anyway - this quilt was a treasure found in my parents home when they downsized. It was tucked away back in the corner of a closet (with others I will introduce in the future) and I had no idea it existed. Actually, neither did my Mom and therefore has no recollection of where it came from nor who made it. However, she does suspect maybe her maternal grandmother might have made it. Looking back in my genealogical files that dates this quilt being made somewhere in the late 1800's or early 1900's. If any of you are good at aging quilts - I would love your opinions.... including what pattern this is.
Another question I have for all my fellow quilters - why did they make quilts square? This is square and so are most of the ones I discovered and now have inherited. Were their beds square back then or were they just laid on top of a bedspread? I've asked this question to a few quilters and no one can give me an answer. I have not done any research on this and might if no one can answer this question.
