When visiting some friends this summer, I spied a couple of antique quilts at their house. They were made by a grandmother that was almost 100 years old when she died a couple of years ago. I don't know when she made them, but I would guess they were made round the middle of the previous century.
Both are made completely by hand, and they are worn at the edges after good use during many years. This is the way old quilts should look; well loved!
I hope some of my quilts will have such a long life as these. Anyway, these vintage beauties are a great inspiration!
