Vintage Quilts on the Clothesline

The curator of a quilt museum would probably say I shouldn't have been handling and slinging over a clothesline the century-old textile that my Great-Grandma Maude hand-stitched!  But it was good to have a large outdoor space to get a photo of at least half of this masterpiece at once.  Here's a look at some of my favorite keepsake quilts.  Do you keep at least a brief family and/or textile history about yours?  We'll post your comments below.

Vintage Star Quilt

I also have a couple of vintage baby quilts to share about another time.  I hope you're enjoying your vintage or antique quilts as much as I love having these around.
