Thought I would treat you all to a quilt show! These are beautiful antique applique quilts that recently came up for sale. Sadly, the makers did not label their quilts so future admirers would know who made them. All were probably made before 1930. I hope you enjoy seeing them!
This is a beautiful rose wreath quilt. It's interesting that the blocks are arranged differently in each row. I wonder if that was intentional.

This is a wonderful, bright Princess Feather quilt. I can vouch for the fact that this is a difficult block to do.
I'm not sure about the name for this quilt block. I love the fabrics the quilter used. They are the pastel green and bubblegum pink of the 20's and 30's. This quilt is a good example of what can happen when you fold a quilt on the shelf. The best way to store a quilt is to roll it up so that there is no chance of getting permanent folds. If you are folding it for a display, just remember to refold it frequently.
And last, but not least, a gorgeous applique quilt with a wonderful border. Notice the green scallop and the tiny white outer border before the pink binding was added. This is folk art at its finest. I wish we could know about the maker and give them credit for their wonderful quilts and their expertise.

Don't forget to enter our GIVEAWAY for a free quilt pattern book so that you can create your own masterpiece! Just remember to do a label with your name and the date! Have a great Saturday! Cheery wave from Bev
