I bought this antique quilt top on ebay a while back for a song. It is all hand pieced from what looks like feed sack material. Isn't it beautiful! It also came with a dozen orphan blocks and various pieces. The top is about 92 x 78.
Now, I could hand quilt it myself, but I know that even if I started it, I would never complete it. Too many other things to do. So kwhite, who lives in Amish country is going to find someone to quilt it for me by hand. I considered (briefly) machine quilting it, reasoning that either I do that or someday someone will sell the same unfinished top on ebay when I'm dead. But dear k came to the rescue. It's too beautiful not to finish, and while I'm not one of those who think that only hand quilted pieces can be called true quilts, I just couldn't bring myself to machine quilt this.
