A Family of Quilts at the Antique Mall

Mr. Wonderful and I rode our bikes to the antique mall last weekend. I saw so many quilts and tops, that I’ll be sharing several posts this week about them. Isn’t this one gorgeous?

This is only a quarter of the top since there wasn’t room to lay it all out. I was sorely tempted to bring this home, but it had definite bleeding issues.

The fabric in the alternate blocks was amazing! And this quilter must have had a lot of it as she also used it in this Courthouse Steps quilt.

This was the only finished quilt in this booth, but they all shared fabrics, so they must have come from the same family.

This top has the same reds as in the basket quilt.

This top was also in the group.

This cabinet was not with the quilts, but isn’t it gorgeous? I wanted to open it up and get a better look at that silk! Someone will be enjoying this, just not me. 🤣

More to come!

Also a reminder that today is AccuQuilt Live day! Click the link to register for the drawings.

Have a great day!

    Such treasures you found. Too bad the family does/did not appreciate the skill and beauty of these.

  2. Oh be still my heart! That “neon” print is sensational! I don’t use black very often but I adore those turn of the century prints that I call neon with those bright colors on black. Yum!
