Day 23 Treasure inside the Quilt - Antique Quilt in an Antique Quilt

I'll always think of  yesterday's X quilt as X marks the spot as it contained a hidden treasure: a glorious early chintz quilt in a wonderful urn pattern with a linen backing. Here's a close-up but be sure to also click on it to enlarge it and see all the detail. The ground of the stripe on either side of the urn is a fine picotage (delicate dots) and behind the urn is a diagonal stripe.

Here's more of the antique chintz in all its glory!

Look - the moment of discovery. Tune in tomorrow to see how I made the discovery ...
