Antique Quilts..just a few

I thought I'd share a few of my antique quilts with you. So first I have a Carolina Lily. It is small, maybe for a twin size bed. I rescued this quilt from a lawn sale. I don't think the owner's cared much for it but I did. Now it has a comfortable life. Second is a red and white Hearts and Gizzards quilt (what a terrible name) from the late 1800s. A wonderful buy from my favorite antique resource...Ebay! Last but not least is a President Wreath. This quilt has fabulous tiny quilting in a half inch grid. It was found in a very old house (mansion) in Stillwater, MN. I hope you enjoyed my little antique quilt show.
Best and happy quilting,
