A little while ago I purchased this quilt at a patchwork show. It had no binding on it, no batting, was somewhat marked in places on the back, but I fell in love with it! It is a well constructed queen size hexagon quilt, hand pieced, using 30,40, 50's fabrics.
On the back there is what looks something like flanelette, it's soft & but thin. There is an occasional knot randomly placed across the top, like tying I guess to join the flanelette to the top. There are no worn areas on the top, no unravelling stitches, no holes. All I have done so far is to add the binding.
All I know about it is that it was purchased previously in an antique shop 15yrs or more ago ... but where? I don't know! This is probably the oldest quilt I have had contact with! I am now wondering about washing it, but am very unsure how to go about this. Any suggestions would be really appreciated!
