{ some vintage quilt inspiration }



This past weekend we went to the South Lebanon School House Quilt Show. South Lebanon is about five miles from our house, and is a really old town on Little Miami River. The quilt show was much bigger than I had expected, and there were some really beautiful things on display. There were a lot of vintage quilts, which are my weakness, and here are some of my favorites.

Thank you, Paige! There were some really beautiful quilts there. I love old quilts too and am in awe at the amount of work these quilters did by hand. I surely don't have the patience to do that!

What beautiful vintage quilts. One thing that I find so striking about these is the fabric - it really looks different from what I see at fabric stores these days. The workmanship is also incredible. Lovely.

Mari, the workmanship amazes me, especially since so much of this was done by hand. I certainly don't have the patience to do that myself!

Those are great! I was given a template for the apple core quilt. I've never seen one before though. Think I'll put it on my growing list of things to make.

You do such beautiful work. I love the vintage quilts, thank you for sharing. My grandmother recently was featured at the TN Arts Center and displayed her Cathedral Quilt. It is one of my favorites. You might like some of the pictures on my Stitched Together blog. I enjoyed my visit (thanks to WWC).
