Vintage Quilts

I love old quilts. The stories they could tell! Here are a few I spotted recently at a local antique mall. 

 
  
  
  
This last one is my favorite. Do you think that “H” block was intentional? 

Happy Saturday!

About katyquilts

I am a wife, mom of four amazing kids, and a librarian. I have been making traditional quilts for ages but have ventured into art qulting in the last several years. I also love to knit socks and mittens and dye my own fabric. I am thankful to God my Father and Creator for the gift of creativity!

    My favorite is the first one – with the big red balls. It’s impossible to know which the H was intentional! It would be helpful to know whether H was in anyway a meaningful letter to the quilt maker.

    I wonder too! I love the 30’s print one with all the blanket stitching. Really beautiful fabrics and the stitching as well as quilting look nice too. Thanks for sharing ! K-

    I would like to think the H was intentional. The old quilt must of been loved by the looks of it…
