Vintage Quilt Top

After 4 or 5 hours crawling around on my living room floor, I finally got this vintage top from the 1930's or 1940's, layered and ready to hand quilt.  I bought it at a local shop where vendors sell vintage and hand crafted items.  The top was hand pieced and was found with two other quilt tops when an old house was cleaned out after the owner died.  No one knows who made the top but it is in excellent shape and probably never saw the light of day once it was finished and put away.   I am not a hand quilter but couldn't bring myself to machine quilt something this old though I was really tempted!  It will take a while to get it done if my sore fingers are any indication.
