speechless...



This antique beauty is from the mid 1800's. It may be found at the Grand Rapids Museum and viewed online here in the "Quilts" gallery. I feel a burning need to go to to Michigan right now...

  5. Hi, Susannah. This is a knock-your-socks-off, drop-dead gorgeous quilt. Thanks for showing it. I also really like your pineapple block quilt--crisp with the white.

  6. Oh. My. Goodness.!! Thank you for sharing this beauty! It stuns me to think the quilter that made this didn't have a rotary cutter, big rulers, and all the other gizmos we have today. I have sat and stared at this beauty for over 10 mins trying to disect it! Thank you!
