Vintage Bow Tie Quilt

 

 

 

            Vintage bow-tie quilt.  This fabulous quilt was destined for the garbage dump.  A friend of mine was cleaning out his house and asked me if I would want this "old thing," or he was taking it to the dump.  It is an absolutely perfect example of a vintage bow-tie pattern.  The quilt was entirely hand-pieced and hand quilted, with many feedsack prints incorporated into it.  My friend is in his 60's, and he believes his grandmother made the quilt, if not her mother, so we can do the math ourselves.  I absolutely love this quilt!
