More Quilts in the Wild

Here are some more quilts that I saw while visiting antique shops with my hubby. Again, none of these made the trip home. This  double wedding ring has been loved to death!

  

This cactus basket was only slightly less worn. I love the green of the baskets.  

This was a neat bow tie variation.      

Love this block.

  

This next one is my favorite.

    
How do you like this pieced back?    

Another bow tie with great fabrics.  

Snowball.  

Economy block. We also found a couple toy sewing machines but they were trop cher for the condition. 

   

I did bring home a set of 8 shoo fly blocks. 

       

The picture of the striped block shows the truest color for the background. 

Have a wonderful day!

    The crocheted doily with the yellow flower center is a beauty! I also notice that the bow tie quilt was knotted,I love a knotted quilt. Nice finds

    There are some lovely antique quilts there. I like that HST one a lot. I can’t wait to see what you do with those blocks.

  3. If I had/to pick a favourite it would be the economy block quilt, in fact it has made me want to break into my Civil War fabrics and start another quilt! So many ideas, so little time!
