This quilt has been in my family for at least 5 generations, and possibly 6. It was given to my mom by my dad's mother and we are unsure if his mom's mom made it or her mother.
The fabrics on this quilt date to 1880's-1890's (civil war era). It would have been constructed in Tennessee or Mississippi as that is where his family is from. Measures: 72x72 (this is approx, as I had to measure this myself with no help and it is heavy). Our Michigan weather was not cooperating when I tried to photograph this, so the pictures are taken inside at our kitchen table instead of outside on the line were you can get a full view of it.
Condition: This has been used, but is still wonderful for use, display or repair. Bindings are starting to fray. I see one hole, and several weak areas in the fabric (mostly the black fabric).
I have several very old quilts I will b listing from our family (YES, I did keep some too). More pictures can be provided.
