I’ve shared this antique top before. It was a gift from my bloggy friend, Diane.
This is one of the most gorgeous old tops that I’ve ever seen. Isn’t that border amazing? And the fabrics! I wish every one if them was being reproduced. Sigh…..
This top is pretty fragile. You can see in the photo below just how fragile. there are quite a few fabrics like this.
It’s a great piece for study. But I can’t help wondering if it could be finished somehow.
I want to at least display it.
It would take a lot of work to repair this. Many fabrics would need to be replaced. Maybe I could take out the worst blocks and make a smaller version. I have more pondering to do here. I plan to leave this out where I can see it, for now.
Have a great day!
