Catching up #3 – vintage quilt #2

Original, eye-catching  titles for blog- posts definitely not my strong point!  But in an effort to get things up to date here’s a look at the second vintage quilt that has recently joined the contents of The Cupboard.  It’s simple, just 4 large blocks, measures 64inches square (approx) the greens have faded to sand colour, there’s double line echo quilting and, on the applique, the most exquisite close stitching I think I have ever seen.  Acquired in the US with no information/provenance etc.  I think you might like this one!
