Quilt Stories - Another of Grandma's Vintage/Antique Quilts
This quilt belongs to my daughter and was made by her Great Grandma. I really don't know how old it is, but it is very old. I've been told that to be considered an antique, an item must be over 100 years old, so it might not qualify as an antique.
This is a pattern that I would like to duplicate in a future quilt!
The backing fabric was made from a salt bag, not feed sacks. You can see the "Morton Salt" imprint in this picture, if you look really closely. Its kind of faded.
This is a picture of my Grandma holding my newborn daughter, who now owns this quilt.
