I really like blue quilts and am really fond of Indigo so no surprise that I brought home this 9-patch quilt top.
Indigo was a major cash crop in South Carolina in the early days of American's history. South Carolina grew lots of rice, cotton and indigo. I live on the Savannah river which separates South Carolina from Georgia. There were several indigo plantations around here back in the late 1700's.
So with all that local history I justified getting another top for my collection. Other than some age spots this is in very good condition. I have several quilts from the mid 1800's that have indigo fabrics in them and the dye holds up amazingly well.
Dobby of course came out for the photo shoot....
