Vintage/Heirloom Quilt Tops!!
I thought I'd fill my large gap in posting (oops) by sharing this absolutely amazing quilt and quilt tops all made by (I believe) my great-great aunt. The above picture is of a completely finished quilt, queen-bed sized, in a pattern called double wedding band. This sucker is heavy and toasty warm, with pretty intense hand quilting.
Next up: Dresden plates, hand appliqued quilt top, queen size:
Twins! More double wedding bands, queen size:
Oh and these suckers are HAND PIECED (ie not machine sewn!). Insane!!!
One of them has an interesting note written on it:
"Another to Dad Finished February 11th 1932"
But of course my favorite part about these quilts are the AWESOME vintage fabric assortments used. Take a look:
There are two more quilt tops too, some sort of star pattern, and a double Irish chain, which I haven't photographed, but you can see more of these quilts at my flickr.
One of these days I really would like to do these justice and finish them, and they've definitely peaked my interest in doing some more modern quilts of my own.
