While working on it, I had many names for it..haha..with Butt Ugly being the initial name. But a friend suggested Primitive as a better name. ;-) So Primitive it became.
They think the lady that may have done this was Martha's great grandmother. The quilt top is hand stitched at 7 stitches per inch. The blocks are basically 15 inch blocks. The fabrics are a blend of leftover clothing for the most part. Some could have been curtains and one looks like boxers. Though there was the IDEA of symmetry..there were mishaps. To properly bind the layers together, I sewed a line vertically and horizontally every 5 inches.
As I told Martha, the quilter in me wanted to cut it to shreds at times, but the quilter historian part of me needed to preserve this. When I completed it out, squared it up, and got the binding on, it looked pretty good. ;-)
So, here are the pics.

The vertical and horizontal lines. Note the plaid fabric and how it folds upon itself.
Supervising the screw ups to get them right.
