I didn't take pictures off every panel of this piece
because they are pretty much the same once you get passed the whole thing
apparently her hubbs liked a certain kind of cigar and didn't deviate too much from those
this next quilt I saved for the last because it is my favorite and it has so much to see in it that I wanted to document it in detail
you will notice it has some lovely seams and motifs in it
some that are repeated throughout and some that stand alone
and it's in very good shape considering it was an actual bed topper
there is very little fading or laddering due to age
which is very unusual when you take into account how old this quilt is
the dates on it range from 1887 to 1933
and it looks to me like much of the seam work was the work of one hand
though the motifs look to be the work of several people
the view of which is stunning and darn it all if I didn't take any pictures of it!
3 windows worth of light, views up and down the waterfront and that ceiling!
