Vintage quilt top made into a quilt
Here are pics of another vintage quilt top that I recently made into a quilt. The top was made (all hand-pieced) by Mary Susan (Weathers) Senter, and she was born in 1843 and died in 1937 at age 93. She married Robert Winthrop Senter in 1861 when she was 18. So the top predates at least 1937.
This is one of about a dozen tops that belonged to a couple that I'm good friends with (he's the grandson of Mary Susan Senter). I've been making quilts from the tops for them and they told me to pick out a top that I liked and quilt it for myself. So I picked this one. It measures 84" x 72", so it is a nice size.
I quilted this on my longarm using a pantograph pattern called "Chantilly Lace".
