Antique and vintage quilts part 3

For the lovers of 30's quilts, that includes me! The Bow Tie quilt was made as a four patch with the squares appliqued on. I do love a scrap quilt.Hand quilted Oriental Stars which were appliqued on, check out those points!
Hexagonal Stars
Grandmother's Flower Garden.
I loved the Graphic visual effect in this Double Wedding Ring.
Tulips
And the gorgeous hand quilting.
Carpenter's Wheel
Michigan's Pontiac Stars, machine pieced and hand quilted with baptist fans.
This last one is Rolling Star, it has beautiful hand quilted feathers in the borders.
P.S I nearly forgot to say that I have joined Christine's nine patch swap for Australian residents, check it out by clicking on the button on my sidebar, there are still some places.

Such beautiful quilts! My daughter found one at an antique mall this weekend. It has a little bit of wear, but the quilt is so pretty. We both loved the colors. Thanks for sharing these great quilts.

Love these quilts. Thanks so much for a wonderful show.

Jackie said...

These are my most favorite of all the quilts that you have shown from this show. I just love them all. Hard to pick which one I like more than the others. Although, I am working on a GFG right now and just posted about it today. So I guess, I may be slightly partial to that quilt.
