Rhoda R. Kapugi says: “My latest quilt, this one’s for me!”
Jacque Evans says: “My G-G Aunts made this, it was a Show Quilt, mostly velvets and satins. It is dated 1875. There are a couple of pieces that have deteriorated but according to the appraiser it is in excellent condition for 137 years old. I just hope I hold up as well as the quilt has. LOL.”
Becky Erdman asks: “This quilt has been in my family for over 100 years – But i have never seen a bear paw pattern like this – does anyone have any idea what this pattern would be?”
