I don’t believe I’ve posted pictures of these two quilts before on my blog. I’ve had them for several years and am considering putting them up for sale on Ebay or Etsy in the near future. This first quilt appears to be from 1930s-50s. The batting is HEAVY cotton and the muslin backing is brought around to the front for binding. The pattern is similar to the Carolina Lily (Block #32) from Barbara Brackman’s Civil War Quilt block of the week series. For some reason I don’t have any close-up shots of any of the fabrics. Fabrics are a major part of what catches my eye when I see an antique or vintage quilt.
Sometimes the quilt can be a little unattractive if the fabric is interesting. This next one is really not a pretty quilt. It has machine appliqued Vintage Ladies and Sunflowers on alternating blocks. The fabric on this one appears to be 1960’s. What caught my eye on this one is the fabric on some of the ladies.
If you look closely at the next two shots, you might be able to see the “Davy Crockett” print. The Davy Crockett television show aired in the mid to late 1950’s. You can visit an interesting web page about the show here.
However, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans were my favorite television western stars in the 50s and 60s. You can read more about them here. Unfortunately, I’ve yet found anything with Roy Rogers fabric in it thus far but I bet there is some out there. In the meantime . . .
Happy trails to you, until we meet again,
