Real Vintage...

Eva K {Mother Dear} has a nice woman that comes and cleans her house every other week. I have always thought this was funny because Mom lives alone and has a place for everything and every thing in it's place. 

A few months ago this nice woman brought my Mom more than a dozen quilt tops that were found in a trunk in the home of a relative that had passed away. The woman knew Mom liked quilts and she gave her the quilt tops, not knowing what to do with them.  Mom finished a couple of the quilts and gave them back.  {I wish I had pictures of those!}  Then  Mom let me look through the tops and choose a couple.  I finished one for myself, sending a check to my Mom for the woman.  The top I selected is a nice size for a table topper.

This top was hand pieced.  I am guessing the fabric is from the 30s, but I am no expert. 

I used a Moda Bella Solid for the binding and back, hoping it was sort of period appropriate.

I had Juna quilt it.  I know, some of you are cringing because I had this vintage top machine quilted, but after years in a trunk, this little quilt was just being begged to be used.

Isn't it sweet?
