230 Year Old Quilt.
Now isn't this special. On display at Our Exhibition is this incredibly old quilt...230 years old ...from the American Civil War era. It's owner who lives nearby at Mt.Maunganui generously lent it to us to display. It is faded most on the top but one photo of a side part with the most colour left in it shows what colours it might originally been. Click on the photo to enlarge it to see the handquilting detail. It was also hand pieced. What a privilege to see this. ( I also got to spread it out on the table and dust cover it at night.)
230 years old; now there's a thought!!!
