    Below are pics of another vintage quilt top that I recently made into a quilt. 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.

    This is one of about a dozen tops that belonged to a couple that I'm good friends with (he's the grandson of Mary Susan Senter). It measures 72" x 82".

    I quilted this on my longarm using a pantograph pattern called Chantilly Lace.

    Thanks, everyone. I really like the splashes of red she used through those blocks. Aren't those cool?

    I can't believe how vibrant the colors are in this quilt for being so old. Great job, Eddie!

    Thanks for sharing and the story behind the quilt. That's what makes them more special and of course your TLC with them.
