Vintage Tops

I’ve been looking for another vintage top to hand quilt. I bought this one on eBay ages ago.

This one is similar, but the edges are hemmed and it shows a lot of wear. I have no idea where it came from. Perhaps it was used as a summer spread?

This one I bought at a yard sale decades ago.

Out of these three, I’m leaning toward the first one. But I may look at a few others in my collection before making a final decision.

Have a great day!

  2. They are all wonderful but I am partial to the last one. Anything with yellow!

  3. Hi Katy, looking forward to watching you hand quilt any one of the three quilts. But especially the last one. Why the last one? Because it’s a bit quirky and has pops of red. It’s lively and just seemed to me that it was like a youngster in a classroom when asked a question by a teacher. I could ‘see’ the youngster eagerly waving his (yes, his) hand, almost bouncing out of his chair, , his entire body language saying ….Pick me….pick me!
