Antique Quilts

Here are more quilts that I saw at the antique mall. The blocks in this first one appear older than the sashing. I suspect from the feel of it, that there was an older quilt used for batting.

This top really intrigued me! The embroidery was beautifully done.

I’m not really sure I understand some of these blocks though. What is this guy doing?

This one reminded me of a redwork crib quilt I made for my youngest.

It had some of the same blocks!

I wish I had yards of the shirting fabric used in this one!

One more post to come. Have a great day!

    I think that fellow is a pirate with a big bag of loot. Notice his peg leg.

    The patterns are amazing! Strong and modest. Who desined them in the past?!

    These are so charming! The sashing in the first one looks to be from the 30’s or 40’s –
