Antique Quilts from Show and Tell

Here are the remainder of the antique quilts shown at the DJ Retreat. The applique quilt was purchased in Shipshewanna. The two Amish quilts are from the early 1900's. The Shoofly reminds me of a Gwen Marston 'liberated' quilt.

It's wonderful to see these old quilts. The red and green blocks with urns look very similar to one I saw on the civil war bride quilt blog.

I'm not the owner of the red and green applique quilt - it went home with somebody else. I didn't buy much fabric - not after my indulgence in PA recently. Fabric was pushing $10/yd at one quilt shop - I didn't even look - didn't need the temptation. I did buy JoJo Pretzels and vanilla Coke - that's a must! I also found a red transferware Vista lunch plate at the antique mall that came home with me!
