This is an antique top that I quilted today. I always wonder as I am quilting these older tops about the people that pieced them. What was going on in their life at the time, were some of these their clothing or their children's, just stuff like that. This top is not exactly straight and square but it wasn't that bad to quilt.
Here it is all quilted! I have 3 more that belong to this same person and one of them is another antique top. It has "Donkeys" on it, I want to keep it! :) The backing that she sent was a vintage sheet. It has warm & white batting and it turned out very soft. I now have the backing loaded on for another quilt. It is a beautiful star quilt. It has a pieced backing with the same fabrics used in the quilt top. This one will take me awhile since the design she wants has a ton of quilting in it. I hope to get started on it tomorrow afternoon. I'll show you more of it as I am quilting it. I think this one measures in at 96/96.Andrew is doing much better today. He is still pretty sore but moving much better than he was.
I know this post is rather short but my backing is killing me for some reason and I'm going to lay on the couch for a bit and then maybe take a hot bath.
