There’s so much beauty in vintage quilts, quilts that are made of reproduction fabrics, and quilts or wall-hangings that honor memories. We love them all. We also love the accessories that go with a vintage quilt or that just look to honor the old traditions of needlecraft. Here are a few we’ve selected to feature this morning. One is from a great-grandmother, one done with research & hand quilting for a Civil War re-enactor, one done with memories of a beloved father, and a beautiful quilted and embroidered pillow sham. We hope you enjoy them.
from: Kathy Mick Disbro: “This is a full size bed quilt that my Great Grandmother made. I believe that she made it before she was married for her “Hope Chest.” Probably around 1910. Flower Garden Pattern.”
from: Wendy Bair Christianson: “From Wendy Christianson: my husband is a historical re-enactor. I made this ‘solider’s quilt’ from a pattern I found in researching fabrics/patterns from the time of the Civil War-specifically a quilt that could have existed in 1870. The hand-quilting makes this the most hours I’ve ever spent on one quilt – and it was worth it!”
