I aslo found an antique quilt that I bought off of craigslist a few months ago. It just hurts my heart that people would think to cut these old quilts up. So I had to resuce this one
It does have its fair share of rough patches but for $30 I just couldn't pass it up. When my husband saw it he thought it was nice but he did want to know where I was going to put it. I reassured him that I would find a place. Maybe someday when we get a bigger home I can display some of my antique quilts.
I am also trying to work hard on this Chess Board quilt. It's coming along but not as fast as I want it to. I decided this am that I had enough strip sets made I was going to start slicing them up into 1.5" strips
Now I have a giagantic pile of these little pieces that I am matching up into pairs & then into 16 patches.
