So, continuing with theme of antique quilts and things spied this week in Cambria, CA…
First, this wool utility quilt. Just rectangles with a bit of feather stitch embroidery between. (Is that the feather stitch?)
Notice the quilt is tied but the ties are all to the back making the front of the quilt cleaner and more tailored. Very nice.
And next to that was this unusual yoyo quilt. Sets of four YoYos done in the same fabrics alternate with lined squares. And the whole thing is finished with another row of YoYos!
And there is just something wonderful about this pink confection! I love its pretty pattern. Part wrought iron, part fleur de lys, and all kinds of beautiful. This would be fun to do from a swap set… Hmmm… A swap set!
Next, this spectacular appliqué kit quilt was probably done 60 to 80 years ago. Still at least as beautiful as the day it was finished. Time has given it a lovely patina.
Beautiful, isn’t it?
Well, I have still more to share so check back tomorrow. Loads of really wonderful quilts…
