MORE ANTIQUE QUILTS, OH MY!

More on American Homestead http://americanhomestead.blogspot.com/2011/07/american-folk-art-museum-nyc-part-2.html

As always, you can see photos of wonderful antique quilts and fabric plus learn a little history behind them from Barbara Brackman’s blog, Material Culture.

Here is one of my own, purchased at a an antique mall in 2010.  It’s called Darting Birds, possibly from the 1930s or 50s.  Baptist fan quilting pattern.  Love it!
