Hand stitches

Back working on tailor’s quilt.  Just to refresh  your memory, I received a wool quilt from Jeff’s family.  His great grandfather was a tailor, and his greatgrandmother made this quilt from the wool suiting samples, over 100 years ago.   I decided to give it a new life by cutting it apart and making something new as it has been used, mended and worn out over the years.  While cutting it apart, I discovered a greasy handprint in a corner  What could have happened?  Was it used as a drop cloth?  Was someone hurriedly moving it to keep it from being stepped on, runover, or saving it from a spark?  This cloth has definitely seen many hands, and I have a record of one of them.
