Another beauty also found recently, a handwoven turned twill coverlet woven on 8 shafts. The centre seam has been beautifully matched.
This stunning quilt has recently joined my collection, found in Southwestern Ontario. It came with the provenance of being Mennonite, and judging by the number of times it’s been repaired, I reckon it’s around 90 years old.

I was over the moon to find this book in the Guild library last night
