So, since I promised a very special giveaway, I am going to start it right now even though I am a little slow on up-take!! :-))
This quilt is a gorgeous quilt that was made in 1968 and the top is not only all made from wool but all of the crazy quilt borders and embroidery are all done by hand. I am not 100% sure but I would imagine that the entire top was hand pieced as well!! Also, this is not a family heirloom. I do not know who made it. My cousin knows I quilt and she saw it and thought I would like it - which I do but . . .
The back is made from a cottony- satiny striped fabric. And folded over as the binding. Then the binding has been hand-stitched with a feather stitch over it.
There is one little hole - see picture below but other than that this quilt is in wonderful condition.
Why am I giving it away, you ask?? Even though it is a gorgeous piece of hand work, the colors are just too dark for me and I have kept it folded up in a drawer for the past several years. So, I thought, I am being very selfish and not sharing this wonderful quilt with the world!! I think this heirloom needs to belong to someone who really would appreciate it and display it or use it.
I am just asking one thing - please only leave a comment for a chance at this quilt if you REALLY, REALLY want to own it or know someone you can give it to who would REALLY, REALLY like to own it!!
I will be sharing this quilt with one of you on August 15th!!
