The back from the antique quilt ....
I was forgotten to take pictures from the back of the antique quilt I show you last . And the back is just as interesting as the front!!!! If you enlarge the pictures you will see that she handquilted it on pieces of old cloths or feedsacks ! I see double pairs of quiltstiches ! Why was she doing it ? did she stich before to be sure that the piece won't remove?? .. It is so interesting. The quilt is not filled with batting .When I am in the shop I need everytime to take a look at this quilt :c)
In the book "Liberated sting quilts"from Gwen Marston you can see on page 7 a quilt wich is made the same way.
