    Read this blog to find out all about it. I'm still in shock over the whole thing. But to have it verified by a quilting historian so quickly is very cool!

    Wow! What a find! I'd almost be afraid to use it. Treasure it.

    that is so neat! good thing you googled it first, sounds like a good suggestion to not cut it up but use it as a backing so as to have the full view of such a glorious fabric!

    The great thing, it was an awesome find. The bad thing...I feel like I need to preserve a treasure now and can't use it. I've googled to try and find the "value" of it with no luck. But, I surely don't want to throw it on the back of a baby quilt now. ;> Kind of what I was planning on doing before I did some research. I just thought it was in such good condition, that it couldn't be 50-60 years old. I'm just glad I didn't throw it in the wash!

    Lucky you!!! That is one amazing piece you have there. If you use it, I would recommend a 30'3 print top to compliment that as a backing and binding.
