    or, they had a quilt that they didn't treasure very much. so they used it to set a top which was really treasured or made by 'grandma'. etc.

    I have used old quilts that were beyond saving as filler for a new tied one.I also did it to try to save the old ones. Sadly my DD didn't understand and used them for her animals and packing. I left them ( forgot about them) when I moved from her house because they were in her DD's room. I do have photos though? Maybe one day I will make some like them.

    shoot if people want to throw away quilts throw them the way of a local quilting club or someone who quilts. They will always find a usefulness for them. Very pretty quilt for sure ! Thanks for sharing

    This is a beautiful quilt. I adore old quilts, and love seeing what our ancestors accomplished without the use of our modern technology.

    So glad you saved the REAL quilt ! I have 2 great old scrappy quilts that were hidden in ugly, tied tops I found at a rummage sale. I peeked through opened seams and realized what I had ...

    Looks like it could be turn of the century or a bit earlier, blues /indigos and reds were favorites then

    Congratulations on the quilts. Thank you for saving them. Some people just don't know what they have. Glad you asked questions and he was kind enough to give them to you. BrendaK
