Mr. Wonderful spied this beauty at an antique fest last weekend and it had to come home with me!
The prints are adorable. Love the diagonal strings of HSTs.
Want to see the back?
Yep! It’s the same on front and back! App, each little piece was made and quilted and then they were all whip stitched together. It reminds me of this quilt that Ila sent to me.
I find it curious that a binding was added. I’m sure it helped strengthen the edge.
And it is living here, in the guest room where one could never be too cold. Lol!
Before I go, AccuQuilt has some great Labor Day sales going on! They have reduced prices on Overstocks even further. Yes, I placed an order all ready. 😊
Check out these deals!
Have a great day!

What a wonderful find, and looks like 30s to 50s prints! A lovely study quilt looking at all the fabrics. A different kind of eye spy. One for quilters!
What a great find on that quilt! I’ve never seen one before that was constructed like that. I’m wondering if maybe the quilter didn’t own a sewing machine.
I love your new addition to the guest room. That is amazing that those were all hand sewn, beautiful quilt and fantastic find.
Such interesting construction. Thank you for sharing the detail pictures.
what a lovely quilt. amazing how they pieced the front and back alike and then put it together with such tiny stitches. lots of work there. looks nice in your room. i forgot to comment on how much you got done in august. congrats. most productive. patti in florida
Gorgeous quilt!! I love the way the colors were laid out! And for the back to be the same as the front, just amazing. Mr. Wonderful made an amazing find. Hugs,
I love the way all the block used a solid HST and the solids were used to make a diagonal design. I am going to try this on my next scrappy quilt.
That is one of the loveliest old quilts I’ve seen. Good find.
What an interesting way to construct a quilt, and what a great find! It looks right at home in your guest bedroom.
