Having a store causes new contacts. A woman came into my store and saw the Sunbonnet Sue quilt that I had hanging which she really liked. The next day she brought me 21 of these squares that she had purchased at a garage sale 25 years ago. These squares are about 15" square. The background is muslin. The skirts are all hand pieced and everything is sewed to the muslin with a black running stitch.
I would like to know how old these are. If you can tell by looking at the fabric what decade they come out of I would love to know. I would like to purchase something for sashing that goes along with the style and era they are from. I'm not a quilt historian and have never studied this. Bu t these squares are beautiful. So help!!!!!
