    Hi Ladies,

    Im new to sewing and quilting and I got this quilt today for $5. Does this look hand stitched? Some of the material in the pattern looks to be made from those feed sacks.

    I havent a clue.

    Thanks for looking and the help!

    Yup, looks like hand stitched needle turn applique, goodness that is HOURS of work and you got it at a yard sale for $5??? Gosh, at least it's found a home where it will be loved and appreciated.

    that is so very pretty. It makes me sad to think that people don't care about things like that but then again they land in the hands of someone who will love it tenderly. =)

    There are two more rows of blocks on the other side (quilt is on chairs). The quilt feels fluffy (for lack of a better word).Maybe somebody found the quilt top and put the backing on it? Even the binding looks hand stitched. Heck, maybe it was in a box or something.

    But...i'm glad I brought it! :-)

    So sad that such a beautiful quilt went in a yard sale for only $5. So sad, that is, for everyone but you! :-) It looks like it's all hand done.

    The really sad...truly sad thing is that the grand daughter was selling all the stuff. There were pictures, bibles all kinds of family heirlooms. I just shook my head. She has a singer tredle sewing machine that i'm trying to find info on.

    I think im going to go back and take a better peek. Model m322996. I think she was selling that for $100.

    Sad for sure!

    Sadly, to many, family heritage is of no importance any longer. You got a beauty, and it looks like it has been well cared for.
