    I think that this was sold at a flea market because the person that created it may have died. Family members did not want it, so sold it, along with other personal items, at the flea market. I purchased it for $10 and thought it was a bargain. The top is hand stitched, something I don't have the patience to do. I added a batting and back and tied together. Thanks for your comments.

    Welcome from SW Ontario, Canada. You were lucky to find a great looking top. I hand quilt my quilts, but have helped out tying charity quilts with a church group.

    Hi from NC. I'm glad you're here.
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

    Wow! That is beautiful.. I bet the person at the flea market had no idea what a treasure they had. Congrats on the great find. I personally go to thrift stores and estate sales. Lots of quilting goes on in this part of the country. (NC)
