Vintage Quilt Top. Pattern often called “Snowball”. 4″ blocks. Hand-pieced. Most all blocks are feedsacks- muslin background. Good variety of color. Quilt measures 68″ x 85″. Some small stains. In the photo of the back of the top- you will see that the owner did not use the 1/4″ seams that quilters use today- hers are more like 1/8″ or smaller- but they are very tiny stitches. As a result some of the blocks have come apart from each other or individual pieces have come unsewed. It will need some repair before quilting, but can be done to have a very nice vintage quilt. If I was going to keep the quilt top, I think that I would remove the outside blocks- they are the ones with the most problems- then maybe move some blocks to have a different size quilt.
