this is a quilt top given to me by a friend who was collecting items for a church yard sale back in the early 1980s.  it is a TOP ONLY, hand pieced, broken dishes pattern.  a prominent new england quilt historian inquired about purchasing this back then, but had visions of repairing and completing it myself.  fast forward 30 years and i realize that will probably never happen. the colors are like new as it has never been laundered.  i have a ballpark idea of its value, but willing to consider any reasonable offer.  some repairs are needed, primarily seams.  an entire row was removed by me and separated into blocks for any fixes to maintain the integrity of the original and would be included of course.   it was made by a massachusetts lady who attended the episcopal church in brockton, massachusetts; no other information is known by me.  please e-mail if require further information, close-up photos, etc.
