    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 70" x 82".

    I quilted this on my longarm using a pantograph pattern of leaves and vines.

    Ms Senter would be ecstatic that such an accomplished quilter was "collaborating" to create such a stunning quilt. The leaves and vines really showcase the blocks. Ah, Eddie....your work is beautiful!

    You do such a wonderful job, Eddie. Just delighted to see these old tops turning into quilts. I am sure Susan would be pleased, too. :thumbup:

    Just gorgeous! You are talented! And you churn out these masterpieces so quickly, do you work a 'regular job' or do this full time now?
    Kind Regards,

    Still work a 40-hour a week job, so only have time for quilting in the evenings and on weekends. :(
