This beautiful antique quilt was given to my daughter and future son-in-law by a member of his family. Apparently, years ago a distant member of his family was a quilt maker. Not only was she a quilt maker, but I would classify her as a master quilt maker! I wish that the photos could do the quilt justice, but take my word for it, this is a work of art.
It is well over 100 years old, and the quilting is magnificent! One thing that struck me right away is that this obviously was made to mark some kind of significant event and was not made as a utility quilt.
