Victorian and early 20th century quilt fabric patches stashbags

I acquired an old patchwork quilt which although large was very damaged. As the designs were superb and very old we decided to unpick the quilt and save the good pieces.

The majority of the fabrics used in the quilt were Victorian but some were early 20th century. I think the quilt was made in the early 20th century using a mix of what was then old fabric and new ones.

I have washed all of the fabrics and bagged them up into stashbags containing 6 patches. These can be used for your sewing projects or retained as examples of designs from long ago.
