Quilts in the Wild

Mr. Wonderful and I have hit a number of antique shops while traveling. Here are some of the quilts we spotted. None are coming home with me but it is fun to look! 

    
    
    
 
This next item was a bit of a surprise. I had to wonder about the maker! 

 
How about that skirt for your next formal party! It was all sewn from satins.  

 I wonder what we will find next!
