Absolutely stunning quilt
I do not know much about this quilt yet. What I have been told is that this quilt was made by my Grandmothers great-aunt on her mother's side. That would place it somewhere in the late 1800's to early 1900's. Everything is hand-sewn except for the edging. This quilt appears to be a summertime quilt as there is no batting in between the front and back. It is a flower pattern. I would like to know more about it from a historical perspective.
