    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. The style of the fabrics look to be early 1900s.

    This is one of twelve tops that belonged to a couple that I'm good friends with (he's the grandson of Mary Susan Senter). It measures 68" x 76".

    I quilted this on my longarm just doing a meandering quilting.

    Not always fond of meandering but I think it really goes well with this quilt. The important thing is the quilt and the quilting just keeps it all together - good job.

    Beautiful. It actually looks somewhat modern to me. Ilove the simplicity of it.

    It's beautiful!
    Did you take any "before" pictures. (maybe, I just missed them, I haven't been around too much). I'm just curious what the antique quilt looked like.

    Meandering is all it needed. Good call.
