Antique quilt purse

This antique quilt purse is using the pinwheel pattern. Notice the very old patterns used in the scrappy pinwheels. Some of the fabrics are very worn, and the cotton batting is showing through the background fabric in many places. The lady who made this quilt had to use very coarse thread for the quilting, and didn't know how to hide the beginning knots on the inside of the quilt batting. They are very obvious in the picture. But, I bet that she is happy that her quilt is still being admired after all these years! I love it!
