Antique Quilts and Reproduction Quilts


I finally got some time to size down the pictures of the antique quilts I saw in Paducah - well some of them anyway. Some pictures are blurry as you couldn't use a flash and I have a hard time holding my arms and hands still long enough for the museum setting on my camera! But they will still inspire you I"m sure! How could anyone not LOVE these! I took pictures of the sheets about each also, that way I can remember about them and you can read them if interested! Enjoy!









I thought I would also share my strippy coine reproduction quilt I made awhile go that you saw. I've been slowly hand quilting it, and I"ve got just a bit left on the top row of fans to go and the outside border! I"m getting so excited to have ti done and then washed and all crinkly that I thought if I shared it maybe I would finish it up a bit faster! Not that by showing it helps with time any! But here you go!

Thanks for posting the lovely antique quilt photos! I love looking at other people's work for inspiration.

Speaking of which -- your coin quilt is "fan"tastic (couldn't resist that one). Can't wait to see it finished!

How lucky you are to have gotten to see these wonderful antique quilts. I especially love the cheddar and red one. I'm mad for cheddar - just like Kathie!

The fans on your quilt are looking marvelous - you are doing a great job. You've made very rapid progress on this and will have a finished quilt in no time!

Love, love, love the antiques - so much inspiration to send you home wanting to get started on something new. My fave is the medallion, but honestly I love them all.
Your strippy coins are nearly done - the crinkly stage is the best.
