Beautiful appliqued table cloth

Hi Everyone, Oh I just have to share this beautiful tablecloth I bought at an Estate Sale...could not pass it up....it has a couple of light stains on it, but it is soo beautifully appliqued by hand...the daughter told me she thinks it was made in the 30's...so I took pics to share....she only charged me $25.00??? can you believe it??? I told her it was worth much much more, but she had a dozen or so, and wanted them off her hands...I even bought 6 napkins that went with it...the napkins were a dollar a piece....it honestly felt wrong I told her, but she just laughed, told me it belonged to her grandmother's sister....oh I would love to know the story behind this tablecloth or the lady who sat and did such beautiful work!! Enjoy!
I even took a picture of the underneath of one of the baskets so you can see the handy work, Isn't it just Beautiful!! Hugs, Mary
