More American Quilts

This top one should have ben in yesterday's post. I showed the beautiful quilting in close up.
Hmmm, I don't need any more border, so I'll just cut it off! I love it!

What do you all think of the large floral borders?


  1. Thanks for sharing, I love seeing these pieces of a woman's history.

  2. Hi Lori!
    You've been tagged!!! We want to know more about you!
    Have a great day!

  3. Just beautiful...simply put...just beautiful.

  4. I love your blog and the old quilts!
    thanks Mamifleur

  5. I really like the large flower prints used as borders. I'm totally loving almost all 1800s quilts--the row quilts, the applique, using whatever they had, the obvious mistakes, the freedom to do whatever they wanted without any worries about "quilt police."
    Thanks for sharing all these beauties.

  6. I like the large floral border. How do you feel about it?

  7. these are what I call quilts that give us incentive..they are gorgeous

  8. oh I love the large floral borders on the right quilt!
    I LOVE the borders of applique where they just made the applique in long strips and cut it off where they needed to so it fit the quilt they are working on, oh to let ourselves have that freedom today, I need to make a quilt like this!
    thanks sooooo much for sharing these pictures I look forward to every post!

  9. I was popping through some of your old posts and thought I'd chime in about the floral borders on the red-green quilt. If I were making my own, I would never do that. BUT, it so says "mid-19th Century transition from chintz/red and green fad/crossover to block style but can't let go of the chintz" that I would be thrilled to own one of these. Make sense?
