A New Old Top

Daughter #3 picked this top up for me while she was at an antique shop recently. Isn’t it beautiful?

The blocks are only about 4.5 inches.

It is entirely hand pieced.

This needs some repairs, but it will be hand quilted for sure.

Have a great day!

    Ha Ha–even before I scrolled down and saw Wendy Reed’s comment, I knew she’d be loving the neons. 🙂 This was a great find!
