A friend told me yesterday that a relative recently found 60 year old materials that were going to be sewn into a quilt. They were in a trunk of my friend's sister that had been in storage.
I think she said the pieces were made from potato sacks. Her friend, who quilts, is going to complete the quilt, and they are wondering if it is sewn on machine will it still be considered a heirloom or antique?
Does the thread type matter? Are there any other pointers you can think of?
I sure think it's a wonderful find, and told her I belong to a great quilt group that will likely have the answers!
