Yesterday my senior park here in Florida held its anual bazaar. Guess what I found? Of course it jumped into my arms and for $2 I took it home. It has 24 nine patches which were probably 12 inches each originally. The top and bottom are partcial blocks. It is not quilted but has a few spots that appear to have been tied at one time. It has been used and washed (so nice and soft) and some of the batting has sagged in one corner. No stains through. The back is solid red fabric that is brought around to the front for binding. It is machine pieced . I know there are a lot of reproduction fabrics out there but I'm thinking this fabric really has been around for a while. I considered cutting the top off and redoing the batting but probably will not get around to it.
I've really been feeling my body yell at me but think I have finally turned the corner. I will have to visit my Dr. when I get back to MI. It takes months to get into GI or rheumatologists here.
