One Old String Quilt

A customer brought this top into my shop and wanted it completed to give to his mother.  It seems his grandmother had pieced it and it must have been stored for several decades. 

 I put a flannel on the back because it is a lap quilt and I just think flannel is quite cuddly.

 Look at these fabrics.  What years are they from?

 I'm sure his mother will enjoy this quilt very much.


  1. Wow, this is quite the little treasure! Loving those vintage fabrics. I have no idea what time period they are from, but I love the florals. They are quite lovely! :) Thanks for sharing that with us!

    I am giving away a fat quarter bundle on my blog this week. I would love for you to stop by and enter! Happy New Year!

  3. How neat, there are some old fabrics in it! Thanks for sharing.
