Vintage Quilts for Sale - New Additions


Downsizing Vintage Quilt Collection -- Two New Additions

The time has come to reduce my stash of vintage quilts. Collected with joy over the years, each one is dear to my heart but now I must send them off to new homes.

Here are two new additions:(scroll down to see all available quilts)



Hexagon Charm 75 x 88 c. 1880
$425

Hundreds and hundreds of fabrics of the era are represented in these hexagons measuring 1.75” per side (3” across) Only one brown print has been repeated after a great deal of examination by many study groups!


Hand quilted with double thread. She wanted it to last. . . and it has! Wool batt.



Backing is woven window pane check. Applied binding of same fabric.





Fabrics appear bright and fresh. I doubt it's ever been washed.

A very few brown prints have been applique repaired by me with original intact. .

The small safety pin on the   brown stripe above indicates the 'fix.' (original hexagon remains under the applique seen below)

Duck and Ducklings 
62 x84    Reduced to $195     $225


This dated signature/friendship quilt records the members of the Mannford Club of 1949 as seen embroidered in the center of the quilt. Each block was probably made by the woman who took the opportunity to embroider her name in a style of her choice.

An opportunity for a little research?

I've shared my vintage quilts in multiple study groups, at trunk shows and lectures - really, with anyone showing the slightest interest in vintage textiles. My hope, as I let them go, is that they will bring joy to a fresh group of adoring fans in a new setting. They will spark conversation and study and serve a purpose. I'm freeing them, in a sense.
I'm sharing photos with prices and minimal data here. Please contact me via  email for more detailed photos or with any questions -- and do check back, I'll be adding more.
