    I can't imagine doing all this hand embroidery on this crazy quilt top...every time I look at it I see something I didn't see before. Unfortunately, this quilt top was never finished. It is very old...the fabric is so fragile that some of it crumbled when I laid it out to take the picture.

    That is a beautiful quilt and you are right - Lots of beautiful hand embroidery. Hard to imagine. That would take me the rest of my life.

    I saw one like this a few years ago when I was living in Nova Scotia. I use to have a woman sell my quilts in her quilting consignment shop in Lunenburg. She had a quilt very similar to this one on display in a special custom made glass case. It was not for sale. It was dated back in the early to mid 1800s. It was absolutely amazing to see!!!

    I take it this one is in your family!!! What an heirloom to have!!
