This QUILT! JUST LOOK AT IT! This is a variation on an Endless Chain (the circles) and a Crazy Quilt (the areas between the circles), and I've never seen anything like it. You will find over 900 pieces throughout of various vintage shirting and calicos and other really beautiful, well preserved cottons. Made from a Vintage quilt top that needed some work, which entailed making the red bias tape for all the circles and sewing them on. The original maker had machine sewn bias tape around all the half circles on the edge of the quilt with a sewing machine so I followed suit with the full circles in the center. I have had the quilt top since September of 2020, so early on in the pandemic and I have been working on it since, very slowly and finally it is ready for its debut! I paid a pretty penny for the top, so given the work involved and my original price it's priced accordingly. You will not be disappointed
It is a gorgeous quilt, lots of crinkle from a wash and full dry in a machine dryer on medium. It's lovely.
There are 16 full circles, 16 half circles, and 4 quarter circles, and again, over 900 pieces!
The Quilt measures 81 x 82 inches, and fits nicely on a queen size bed as you can see in the photos. It would be great on a double/full as well.

STORY OF VINTAGE RESCUE QUILTS
Following my love of Vintage Quilts and Quilt History, I find and source unfinished vintage quilt tops from various places. I then make any repairs needed to the quilt top, including mending loose seams, replacing disintegrated fabrics, and attending to stains that may be treated. I then pair the quilt with a modern fabric backing and batting and quilt it using my longarm quilting machine. I use no computers on my longarm and everything is done manually by hand. In the end, these unfinished quilts from long ago are transformed into quilts that are totally amazing, stunning, and, well, beautiful! Sometimes I'm so struck by a quilt's transformation! It is an honor to bring these beauties into the future and finally give them the ability to be used and loved!
❀ wash cold, gentle cycle, mild soap and dry in a normal drier on low to medium or lay flat or hang to dry. Do not hang in direct sunlight to dry.
