    Hi Ladies,

    Im new to sewing and quilting and I got this quilt today for $5. Does this look hand stitched? Some of the material in the pattern looks to be made from those feed sacks.

    I havent a clue.

    Thanks for looking and the help!

    The last three pics clearly show hand stitching - great find

    that is so very pretty. It makes me sad to think that people don't care about things like that but then again they land in the hands of someone who will love it tenderly. =)

    There are two more rows of blocks on the other side (quilt is on chairs). The quilt feels fluffy (for lack of a better word).Maybe somebody found the quilt top and put the backing on it? Even the binding looks hand stitched. Heck, maybe it was in a box or something.

    But...i'm glad I brought it! :-)
