Look what she bought -- Mary Jo Bonsall 10-10-11
Mary Jo Bonsall, Dunlap, found this vintage beauty at the Brass Armadillo in Des Moines. It is clear that the original quilter was interupted and unable to finish the quilt. The blocks are are hand-pieced. Mary Jo picked out a suitable backing fabric and matching quilting thread, and after much deliberation, decided to quilt the entire top as is, rather than finishing the quilt herself. She plans to add it to her collection of vintage quilts. Mary Jo has made arrangements to have her quilt top hand quilted in Manning.
