Vintage Quilts from Quilt Show

Here are more vintage quilts from the quilt show I attended a few weeks ago.

This beautiful 30's quilt was a family treasure.
I believe the squares finished at 1 inch! It was gorgeous!!

These little hexagons were small too, made by the same Grandma as the previous one.

I thought this display was adorable. I love aprons and wear them often.

It's been a busy week and the next few weeks will be busier still with a college and high school graduation.
My birthday was this week and how in the world I got to be 48 is beyond me!! Time flies like lightning!! We are celebrating this weekend my birthday and mother's day. My son is in the midst of finals will not be able to come home but my daughter will be here. My sister sent me some beautiful flowers and hubby brought me out to dinner. We usually keep holidays and birthdays pretty low key.
We have had some gorgeous weather for two days now!! Another couple of weeks and I should be able to plant my small vegetable garden.
Have a wonderful weekend!!

  8. Happy Birthday Lori!!!!

    Loved the quilts, especially the hexagons, they are so pretty. And what a great display with the aprons.

  9. Gosh Lori, this Grandma was quite the quilter, wasn't she? I love the 30's quilt with the prairie points. Then I really love the little hexagons, too. Such a gift she had. I didn't know you wear aprons. I love them but don't wear them. I used to but something happened and I stopped. Why is that? Hmmm...

    Well never mind that. Happy Birthday to youuuuu!!! Can you hear my best singing voice? It's lovely. Just walk out back, you'll hear it all the way from Florida - I'm certain. Silly *karendianne.

  17. ~!!~happy (belated) birthday~!!~

    yes~!!~ some warmer days here too and the sun tempts me outdoors just enough to discourage much progress on anything else . . . oh well, the season is short and demands my attention~!


    p.s. even your quilt photos speak of spring~

  18. I LOVE the postage stamp Irish chain. Thanks for posting it.

  19. I LOVE all the pics of the old quilts! I too love old quilts and have them all over my home! I have just opened a quilt retreat in my home. I know you are a long way away, but take a look anyway at www.farmer's I am checking out blog sites because I'm trying to get one up and going.
