    Boston Commons finished after many years

    This top was found in a trunk in home of my customer's mother after her mother passed away. It is hand pieced. She asked me to add borders and hand quilt it. We think it was made in the '30s of feed sack material. What an honor to finish this beautiful old quilt.

    It must have been saying, "LET ME OUT, LET ME OUT". Well it's out and you did a great job on it. Thanks for sharing. BrendaK

    Your border looks like it was just meant to be there. How fun to look at all the fabrics.
