A vintage treasure

I just wanted to share the top of the old quilt I bought in Hillsville, VA at the Flea Market.  I love these giant pinwheels in old fabrics!  Dont these look like som of Denyse Schimidts?

 I finsihed cutting all the ties and the thread on the binding which was the edge of the backing turned to the front.  The backing is intact and is large pieces of hand dyed fabric with a few prints and fertilizer sacks.  The quilt inside is extremely deteriorated.  I just carefully bundled everything up and put them away to play with another time.

This was the haiku mug rug I made for Living My Sweet Life.
