    Awsome!! That is a lot of little pieces, I wonder how long it took the lady to do it. And 9 stitches per inch on the quilting, My goodness! It is beautiful.

    Beautiful quilt!

    I don't understand the concept of pricing though, does anybody here? That seems like a lot of money for a quilt. Just my own opinion. :lol: :lol:

    That is a bit pricey, isn't it. The time and work that went into it and since it is an "antique" commands the price I guess.

    Amazing is the right word for it! Do you suppose it was a collaborative effort? I would think sewing/quilting together would have been a huge social custom for our grandparents and great grandparents.

    All the stories I hear about life back then was work work work. Who has time to quilt/sew such fine intricate work?

    And I spent a lot of time on that site just looking at them. But, I'm so taken by the Indian trade blankets! Can you imagine trading a can of coffee and some sugar for a work of such skill and beauty as that? All those bold colors and symmetry.

    Amazing.
