I love this quilt!
The blocks are c. 1860. And some of the fabrics were in pretty bad shape.
Then some 120 years later, in 1980, the circles were set into squares and the quilt was backed and quilted. That event is recorded in embroidery on the back of the quilt:
“Quilted: 1980 Carversville Pa”
Here are before and after views of one of the blocks.
And a mood photo, just because:
Now, enjoy all of these wonderful sunbursts!
