    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 72" x 82".

    I quilted this on my longarm using a pantograph pattern called Chantilly Lace.

    Thanks, everyone. I really like the splashes of red she used through those blocks. Aren't those cool?

    I can't believe how vibrant the colors are in this quilt for being so old. Great job, Eddie!

    Thanks for sharing and the story behind the quilt. That's what makes them more special and of course your TLC with them.

    Mrs. Senter was quite a quilter wasn't she? You did a beautiful job Eddie.

    Eddie, the vintage quilts you get to quilt are wonderful. I wish I had some friends with old quilt tops. Do you have a job? You seem to produce a quilt a week!! I am retired but between the honey do's and the yard work I only have time to quilt in the evening. So it takes me while to complete a quilt but I hand quilt and this takes time. I love you quilting. Glenn

    Yes, still working 40 hours per week at my day job. :) My quilting time is in the evenings and on weekends. But then again, this is pretty much my only hobby.
