Not an Heirloom, and Not Clutter

At least it's not an heirloom from my family. This quilt was given to me by a friend; a local quilt expert said the top is from around 1850. The back is from the early 1900's and that is when it was quilted also. It's not a national treasure (as they say on Antiques Roadshow) but it's still a treasure.
