A few months ago, I attended a wonderful quilt show featuring antique quilts dating from the mid 1800s to about the 1940s. I love quilts. They bring warmth to our homes and the old ones tell us so much about the industrious people who came before us.
The quilter made this quilt in memory of her baby sister, who died of pneumonia at the age of one.
Isn't this gorgeous? It's one of the most intricate pieces of needlework I've seen!
The quilter embroidered her name and the year in the lower left corner. I've marked it with an arrow. I can't believe this quilt is still in mint condition!
There's so much to look at. I could have studied this one for hours! In this section alone, there are maracas, a horse, a six-point star, a fan, a bird, and multiple snowflakes and flower sprigs!
I have many more photos from the show to share. I'll be posting more soon. Keep on creating!
