      Nice hand tied patchwork quilt . What I think I see is surged edges on the squares if that is case then I am inclined to think they used sample material that would be on display at a store so you could order more but store did not have it in stock ? I have never seen and antique quilt surged before so as a past quilter myself I made many I never had a surger . People would use any scraps to make a warm blanket and by chance they store was getting rid of outdated samples I could see someone sewing them together into a quilt to stay warm . Can you look at edges and tell me if the are surged ?

      Well the fabrics could be old but if the blocks are surged together the quilt is not old . They did not have surgers years ago for home use . I am a quilter and have my own large quilting machine . I did have a shop here in my home for a while and I did machine quilting for other people . From what I can see the quilt pictured above is not old .

      Nancy is right. Anything surged is not that old. I have seen a lot of these quilts made from old clothes, suits, etc, just for the warmth. I own a few of them, they are not so old, just look like they are because of the primitive way they are made, the old wools and polyesters. A quick way to make a warm quilt for hunting, camping, home, etc. Mostly they have flannel backs. Nice, though.
