Vintage Quilts and a Batting Question

First of all, I had lots of questions regarding the batting I am using in the little vintage quilt I shared yesterday. I wish I could tell you all what it is, but I can’t. It was a piece of cotton batting I found in my stash, left over from an earlier project. I think it is some variety of Mountain Must, but honestly, I don’t know for sure. 

And now for today’s post.

When I bought the little top I showed yesterday, i saw many other lovely quilts and I thought I would share them with you.

I still love 9 patches!

And scrap quilts will always be my favorites!

I spotted this sweet little crib quilt and was tempted to bring it home.

The blocks were only about 4 inches! It was worn, but so sweet.

Not a quilt, but you don’t see coverlets like this everyday.

This top appeared to have been made from very worn fabrics. I love the 30s fabrics.

Check out the border on this wool log cabin!

This top was also very tempting. But it had quite a few fabrics that were extremely thin and would need replacing if it is to be finished.

I was tempted to spread out this friendship quilt, but there wasn’t room.

Here is another I would have liked to spread out.

This log cabin looked like it had been cut down from a larger quilt. The binding and backing were much newer than the center.

Have a great day!
