This one measures between 13 and 14 inches square. Construction is by hand with hand quilting. The wadding is very thin now. This one was made by my mother or her mother, but it was my mother's as a child. I played with it as a child too.
You can see the construction is a half square triangle and a four patch. The binding just scooted around the corner somehow.
This quilt was made by my mother. It measures about 16 by 32 inches. I had to de-construct it as the wadding was an old wool blanket that shrunk dramatically at some stage when it was washed. It wasn't quilted. It was tied with knitting wool. I cut the ties and took the binding off. The backing was purple. I love the black and white check binding. It is sewn by hand. I plan to put a new backing and binding on, and cotton wadding. Not sure yet if I will hand quilt it or tie it again. A close up of some of the yummy fabrics...Sadly, housework calls. That's one call that eventually you just have to answer.
