I am doing a little reorganizing today as I am getting some new furniture delivered monday. This required the moving of a small quilt cupboard during which I came across two little quilts to share. The first is indigo and white hour-glass. The size is 14"x19". The stitching leads me to believe that it might have been made by a young girl who was learning to sew. Two black and white shirting are used, along with two indigo polka dot prints. There are a few lighter blue triangles in the sawtooth border. Throwing in a few different prints like this can give you a more antique-y look when you make a quilt. I reproduced this quilt several years ago in both blue and white and red and white.
This is a little 16-patch tied doll quilt. It measures 15"x15". Again this was probably made by a young girl. The imperfection is what I find so charming about antique doll quilts. I haven't reproduced this one yet but I feel inspired to give it a try Both of these little gems date to the late 19th or early 20th century..
