Treasure!

Those of you that follow me on Instagram have already seen this, but I wanted to make sure the rest of you also saw this amazing quilt.

I went to a quilters’ sale yesterday. People rented spaces and the money went to a local guild. I admired this quilt and the lady that owned it gave it to me! She said I looked like I would give it a good home. I feel so lucky! I did give a donation to the guild. I found some other fun stuff that I will share soon, but I’m smitten with this lovely piece!

The quilting in this is incredible, very original. It is very worn, but it screams Arizona Territory to me! I love the colors and the innovation border.

I would like to recreate this some day.

I wonder about the maker. She put so much of herself into this.

Such a gift! Have a great day!

    Your quilt treasure is just that, a treasure! It may have ended up in Arizona but to me looks like it might be eastern Mennonite in origin. Do you think that might be the case? The colors certainly have that southwest flavor though.
