First and foremost, thank you for all of your kind words and support on yesterday's news! I was SO nervous to spill the beans! Like barely ate, barely slept, nervous. As your sweet comments, emails, and tweets came pouring in, I felt so relieved! It's so new to me, it's hard to wrap my head around just yet! :)
I have a few posts lined up to share the fruits and adventures of our vacation last week! Today I am sharing with you SIX vintage quilts that my sweet Aunt Karen (Hi!!) gave me! I love them so much! I don't know much about them, but I think they were all made by someone in our family. So, let's take a peek!
I'm totally in love with this dresden quilt, I have a thing for dresden plates! The way the centers and the plates are done is so different than other quilts I've seen, it is so cool looking! They're all hand appliqued and it's entirely hand quilted as well! There are some seriously awesome fabrics in this one!
My Mom said this one was on her parent's or grandparent's bed (I can't
remember which!), for a long time. This one is probably my favorite. You just
can't beat a vintage double wedding ring. I'm thinking that despite my
hatred of templates I will probably have to make one at some point! I
am pretty sure it's hand pieced, it's definitely hand quilted.
This red and white quilt is just a top. It's actually in pretty good condition! A few stains I might attempt to get out, but I probably won't try too hard, they aren't bad! This one is also hand pieced. Will definitely have to get this one quilted!
