This is an antique quilt from my family farm, @1850. It is @83"x81", and is cut out for a four poster bed. The pattern is Nine Patches, in rows with sashing. It is not in good condition at all, but I am honored to have something that was made by someone in my family, so many generations ago.

Antique Quilt Top, @62"x74". Hand pieced, and not quilted - yet ;). I think it is a Jacob's Ladder pattern.

Love the back - can you see the writing from the feedsacks?

Log Cabin Quilt Top, @78"x78" in the Barn Raising Pattern. This is hand pieced onto a foundation, and the blocks are hand pieced together. It is not quilted.

This quilt is a mystery to me. My mother thinks my grandmother made it, but my grandmother doesn't remember making it ;). It is 51"x65" and was used on a youth bed when I was growing up - so I hope that means it is NOT an antique! It is hand appliqued, hand embroidered, and hand quilted. There are lots of fun shapes quilted in - like drums ;)

This is an interesting quilt. It is @56"x90", and has an old linen blanket as batting. Two of the blocks are in a different pattern from the others.

String Quilt Top, @72"x84". This is machine pieced onto feedsack foundation. I don't want to quilt it, because the back is so interesting - I have shown this to many student classrooms to explain about feedsacks being made into quilts in the 1930's/40's.

I don't know the name of this applique pattern - maybe Christmas Cactus?   The applique is done by hand. The big blocks are pieced/sashed by machine, and the quilting all done by hand. It's in very good condition! It is about 69"x89".
