Old Quilts, continued (Trip Around the World)

I bought this "Trip Around the World" at auction about 21 years ago. It was part of a lot that included a couple of scraps and another quilt. I resold the other quilt, but kept this one. The back is heavy feed-sack, but the front is a cotton sateen. Hand pieced and quilted with thick twine.



 


This one is in excellent shape.

Love the dark blue diamonds - they add character (especially the one on the left hand side)! I'm findng this series very interesting since my Mom is an avid quilt collector. She used to buy antique quilt tops then send them to the Amish to quilt. So beautiful!
