The Really Old Quilt I Never Finished




I told about not finishing a quilt that I did in the "quilt as you go" method that was popular in the late 70's. This afternoon I got it out and took it's picture - mainly because I think you will enjoy seeing what kind of fabric we had to work with back then. I still have a little bit of some of those calicoes tucked away someplace. The prints were so tiny and the colors usually bright. Actually, I think this is not a bad looking piece and would be pretty if it were finished. However, I doubt if it will be me that finishes it! The center part is all done and a couple of the borders. When the borders are applied, it will create a triangle border all around the quilt. (Click to enlarge)

I think it is gorgeous. I too think you should finish it.

I started quilting around that time and I remember those calicoes quite well. I made a baby quilt using them.
