Vintage Quilt

Today I went to my Quilt History

study group where we were shown 

some wonderful vintage quilts!

 One of my favorites! A crazy quilt

made about 1850 in Philadelphia.

The stitching is beautifully done!

Almost every square was done with

the Broderie Perse technique using

beautiful chintz fabrics.

I can image all of the time, work

and effort put into this treasure!
