Treasure!

I decided to check out Facebook Marketplace the other day and came across this ad. I contacted the seller right away, but it was already pending.

When the buyer was a no show, the seller asked if I was still interested. Ummmm….yeah! So Oscar and I took a little road trip an hour south and picked this up!

It is about 55 by 70 inches. The green stashing is fugitive, but the blocks are perfect, except for a couple small stains

I suspected from the ad photo ( there was only one), that it had been more recently tied. When I saw the back, I was certain. That green is much more recent.

The ties are easy enough to remove.

And the holes will disappear.

They used a thin flannel for batting and turned the sashing to the back for a self binding.

Of course, I opened it up! The hand stitching is impeccable!

I will finish taking this apart and it will go on the pile to be handquilted. The lady I bought it from was not a quilter, but she had a really cool barn!

Have a great day!
