Here’s another Throwback Thursday post for you! Today I am sharing a few of my antique treasures with you. I bought this first one up in Traverse City , MI a few years ago while traveling with hubby.
It is not in good shape, but I couldn’t bear the thought of someone cutting it up! So I brought this home. The stitching is so very fine!
See the tiny piped binding? It has completely faded to white. I wonder what color it used to be.
This next one was made by my hubby’s grandma. Her embroidery and quilting skills were amazing!
Here is another made by hubby’s grandma. You can barely see the leaves that have faded. I love this!
This one I purchased at an estate sale.
It is entirely hand pieced.
The edges are turned in and whip stitched closed.
Another family quilt! Hubby got this one because his favorite color was purple. I sure am glad that it was! This quilt is a masterpiece. The stitching is unbelievably fine.
This one came from hubby’s other grandma. It is quilted in Baptist Fans. I love this one too! It has been well loved. I sometimes use this one on my guest room bed.
This one was found laying in the dirt at a local antique festival! I scooped it up and gladly paid the lady the $20 she was asking for it.
This is likely the oldest quilt in my collection. As you can see, many of the fabrics have completely shredded away.
Check out that stitching! That grid is approximately 3/8 of an inch apart!
I cannot imagine how long it must have taken to stitch this up!
I feel fortunate indeed to be the current caretaker of these beauties.
Have a great day!
