More Vintage Quilts

Here are the quilts Claire purchased this year at Sisters. 

This one has quite a few older fabrics in it. although a quilt is dated from the newest fabric.


This one was great. The zig zag setting is stunning. I like what the maker did at the top to make it a little longer. What's not to love about the fan quilting?
Sarah S made it. Too bad she didn't date it as well.


And this one, which the fabrics seem to say 30's, has a setting that is used in much earlier times. Large 4 block quilts are another favorite of mine.

Even though the top one isn't in great shape, it is a favorite of mine because of the variety of fabrics.

Although I didn't actually sit down at the machine, I got some marking done on a quilt I NEED to finish, so I did get something quilt related  done.

Enjoy your weekend!

  4. I love the patched-togetherness (technical quilting term) of the top one, too. Most of the vintage pieces I have are like that--every last scrap sewn together to make the pieces the needed size. Some are even just overlapped and stitched with a running stitch--raw edge exposed.
    Oh, the Baptist Fan quilting is wonderful!
    And I love the peachy color in many 30s quilts. So pretty!

  6. I would have bought any of these if I had the chance. They're gems! Sad that the Antique quilt sellers won't be at Sister's again.

  11. The quilt in the top photo looks to be a pink and brown quilt but I see other colors in the mix. Interesting seeing the different fabrics.

  14. I thought for sure the top one was appliquéd. I think the piecing made it much more difficult. The background fabrics were so unique. It's my fave.
