I purchased this quilt at a local flea market last summer or the summer before. The woman said it was from the time of the civil war. The condition is not great in some spots and it looks like it's "been" through a war, but I'm just not sure of the time period.
Does anyone have any information or thoughts on this quilt. I took pictures from a distance, of the backing and close-ups to help. The last 2 pictures are of the worst damage...one looks like a civil war cannon blew a hole through it!!! You can click on the pictures for more of a close-up.
I absolutely love this quilt and all the wonderful colors. To think that if it is from that time period, that someone wore those clothes that those blocks were made from. Funny how I am drawn to so many different styles and colors of fabrics. I love civil war, 1930's, Thimbleberries, reds and aquas, brights...I love them all, that's my problem.
Thanks in advance for all your help~
