The quilt is machine pieced, and the work is so close and tightly done, that at first look, you would think the top is all one piece of material. But since there is a tear in the one square, I could look at the sewing behind it. The seams are beautifully sewn, and clipped to about 1/8th inch. The blocks are outlines with black thread in a zigzag pattern throughout. The back is two pieces of the same red material with small white flowers. Oops, forgot to photograph that.
Not all the blocks are the same size. Some are just small strips sewn in. I thought maybe someone would recognize some of the old fabrics.
The butterfly looks like it is applqued by it is printed that way
The black zigzag is just design. The actual stitching is so tight it doesn't show. I hope someday I can do that good, lol.
The little brown strip is a single piece. There are a few this size. Look slightly to the left, there are some small pieces that size, too
