What a simple joy to have our own clothesline now for drying laundry! It created the perfect opportunity to hang out nearly all of my vintage quilts at one time. An overcast afternoon devoid of harsh shadows helped me get some photos of them. I'll have to try again with a bit more sunlight and see how that goes.
My husband and I have been given quilts now from both sides of our family. Some, made by grandparents, one by an aunt, and at least one stitched by my great-grandmother.
Some are tied, some machine-quilted, some hand-quilted.
