Vintage Quilts Part 2

I saw so many interesting quilts while we were traveling, that I ended up splitting my pictures into 4 posts! I love vintage quilts. I don’t feel a need to buy them all, bug I do enjoy taking pictures for future reference.

I want to make one like this some day! I love, love, love that border!


The next two puctures are the same quilt. Love the madder prints.


This top came close to coming home with me!


Have a great day!

    I love them all too! I was at a festival and saw a vintage quilt someone was using as a picnic blanket on the ground and asked to take a picture. It gives so much inspiration! Thanks for sharing!

    Beautiful quilts. Thanks for sharing. Hugs

  3. I love vintage also. I guess it is because I’m vintage. 🙂 The blue and white border is pretty and looks perfect on the quilt. Could probably never find that exact shade of blue but if I ever do, it will be mine.

  4. They are really pretty quilts! You passed up the quilt with the baptist fan quilting?? 🙂 I think I would’ve wanted to come home with all of them!

    I love that first quilt especially and the second to the last one has a very unusual pattern and fabric. They are all beautiful quilts.

    Some wonderful inspiration here. Thanks for posting them, Katy.

    Yes, very inspiring! Love the navy and white one. Jenny at MO Star Quilt Co just had a tutorial (today or yesterday) on this block…called it the Dutchmans Puzzle, and such an easy way to make a flying geese looking block. I think my husband would love that. Have some white on white fabric with anchors, and lots of blues…hummm. Thanks Katy. Love your blog!!

    I bought one just like the last one -green bordered one – for $5 in Honolulu, HI. Mine is just a top. Hope to quilt it someday. Thanks for the vintage show.

    That second last quilt is so interesting! I had to study it to see how it was quilted. Thanks for this wonderful post!
