Welcome back to another addition of Vintage Quilt Monday. Today I'm sharing one of my absolute favorite vintage quilts that I own. This Dresden Plate quilt was another one from the group that my step-mom gave to me, and it was made either by her grandmother or great-grandmother.
Isn't it amazing? And it's in fantastic shape. No holes, no tears, no fading. I'm assuming that it didn't get used much, if any, at all. It's so gorgeous, and looks to be completely pieced and quilted by hand. Amazing, right?
The colorful pieces of the design are made out of all sorts of scraps, from what I'm assuming are feed sacks. There are so many fun prints! And the edges of the quilt are scalloped, repeating the scalloped shape of the Dresden Plates, with binding in a dark pink cotton.
No words that I could write would compare with this beauty, so I just took lots and lots of photos to share with you.
I love the little pink appliqued flowers!
And I love how the stitching looks from the back of the quilt!
