    Below are pics of another vintage quilt top that I recently made into a quilt for a friend. The top was made (all hand-pieced) by Mary Susan (Weathers) Senter, and she was born in 1843 and died in 1937 at age 93. She married Robert Winthrop Senter in 1861 when she was 18. So the top predates at least 1937.

    I just did a free-motion quilt pattern all over it so it will hopefully help it hold up from any deterioration, and did a plain white backing.

    BTW, I have 8 more of these vintage tops. :D

    In truth, nothing is any prettier than a simple 9 patch.

    The dozen quilt tops all belonged to a couple who we've been good friends with for about 20 years. They're an older couple and the woman who made these quilt tops was the grandmother of him. So these have special sentimental meaning for them. They've had these tops in a bag in storage for about 50 years since they came by them and decided that they wanted to have them quilted so they could have them out and use them and enjoy them. So I've been quilting them for them.
