Vintage Quilts Part 3

I love looking at old quilts for inspiration! I hope you do as well. Here are some more shots taken on our recent travels.

I both loved and hated this next one. The top itself was very old and beautifully pieced, but someone had finished it fairly recently. By fairly recently, I mean since poofy poly batting became available. Ugh. 

This ruffle on the edge made things even worse. If I owned this, I’d take it apart. 

These 9 patches were only about 4 inches. I loved this quilt.

And what is not to love about the Baptist Fans on that log cabin?

The hexies on this GFG were only one inch from side to side. 

Several of these are quilts I would like to recreate at some point.  My bucket list just keeps growing!

    I agree the poly batting does not belong in quilted quilts,I do use it in knotted quilts or comforters to send to charities. My son was in PR for several years ,I had made him a knotted quilt with poly , he said that it dries quickly and didn’t get a moldy smell like his other blankets. Maybe that’s why that person used it???? Beautiful old quilts!

    Hi Katy,
    All these quilts are just beautiful. The first one reminds me of a man’s tie – maybe it’s just the angle. The stitching of the Baptist Fans is just fabulous. These always inspire me. I wonder how old some of them are, and what stories they hold. ~smile~ Roseanne
