I love finding quilts in antique shops, even if very few follow me home. Here are a few I’ve seen recently. I sure love this bright yellow sashing!
The hand quilting on this was beautiful.
This one had the tiniest diamonds. It was in need of a really good soak.
I’ve never seen this block pattern before. It has the same kind of running stitch appliqué that I used on my Vintage Daisy quilt . This is the kind of simple appliqué I might be able to do! I would like to make a quilt with this block some time.
I don’t know the age of this next quilt. It was beautiful, but at a price tag near $600, I wasn’t about to unfold it. It is most certainly over a hundred years old, maybe even civil war vintage. The hand quilting was beautifully done, but not near as close as I would have expected given the age of the top. The rows were a good inch apart, not close enough for unbounded cotton batting to hold together in the wash.
Perhaps it was finished at a later date, I couldn’t tell. I guess only the quilt knows.
Have a great day!
