Vintage quilt top #10 made into a quilt

Below 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. The style of the fabrics look to be early 1900s.

This is one of twelve tops that belonged to a couple that I'm good friends with (he's the grandson of Mary Susan Senter). It measures 68" x 76".


  1. I love love looking at vintage quilts, so much love is put into the quilt.

  2. That's a beautiful quilt. I have a growing collection of vintage quilts, but don't know the history of them. Glad you were able to turn this top into something they'll be able to use. Lane

  3. It's beautiful! I love this style of quilt. Amazing how you get to work with such antique (?) pieces and bring them to life!
