|There is no organized pattern of these squares.|
|1869 was the birth date of the first hands to work this fabric, then 1889, very humbling for me to touch this.|
|Hand basting helps a lot when working with big pieces of textiles.|
|You can tell these again are very old fabric patterns.|
Since it is not just old but all hand stitched I think it might be fragile and be better less worked. Also since it is dark it might be nice tufted with red yarn? There is a red tiny tiny candy cane pattern in some of the squares which makes me want to take it to a more holiday feel? I don't know though!
|I love the blanket stitched edges on this heavy old comforter.|
One thing is for sure, it is 3:30 PM on Friday and I am pooped! So I will sleep on it. Tomorrow is another day.
