Some of you already know that, over the years, Barbara has gathered an assortment of vintage quilts and patchworks. Just because we can, we thought we’d show you some close-ups from a small unfinished hexagon piece – look at the closeness and size of the stitching, not to mention the piecing of fragments to make a full patch. The fabrics are delightful, ranging from classic small patterned chintzes to detailed roller prints, and probably encompass 1850 – 1880 in date. Hope you enjoy the views! –
The blurry line across the bottom of this pic is a 12inch ruler, just to give an idea of scale.
