Grandmother's Quilts #3

Grandmother's quilts continued . . .
This is a 3 color quilt: a light buttery yellow, a blue calico and a blue solid. 
It is completely hand pieced and hand quilted. 
Nice tiny, even stitches. 
Hand stitching on the sawtooth border--  The back of the triangles is not pieced, the backing fabric is simply extended out to face the triangles.  The raw edges were cut, turned and hand stitched closed.  I don't know if I could do this or not.
