Surprise #2!

Ready for another mystery? I also picked up this comforter at the same sale as the one I showed yesterday.

Looks like someone else had already started snipping ties! I finished the job.

Here is the back. Such wonderful mourning prints!

And…..yes! Another quilt inside!

Even worse condition than the last. But still so fun to see!

Thus is the backing.

You can see this one was also tied. I thought those wide borders might be whisker guards, but nope, they were borders.

Such great fabrics!

Love this indigo.

It’s interesting how thus black fabric deteriorated.

Thus seems a common print for the time, but the base fabric is very coarse.

I think it’s so fun to study these old pieces. I hope you enjoyed these too.

Have a great day!

PS I’ve been cleaning out this summer and noticed the link to my eBay auctions on the sidebar needed updating. It’s fixed now in case you are interested!

    I have two questions for you, Katy. What is a “whisker guard” and what can/will you do with this latest find since it’s beyond repair?

  2. Oh, that is so fun! I’m thoroughly enjoying your discoveries!
