String-A-Long Quilt Show, Part 1

Popping in to share the antique quilts that were exhibited at the local guild show.  The first three quilts are part of the county exhibit.   

The quilting on this sawtooth star was amazing.  Wouldn't you love to see the full quilts!

This log cabin was folded with only a small section displayed. Unfortunately, the info sheet was pinned to the quilt.  This was one of my favorites - very soft colors.
Next, a 30's quilt.  Again, beautiful hand quilting!

I saved the best for last!  This quilt is owned by a guild member - part of a small antique display.  Another example of beautiful hand quilting and wonderful applique!

Wow, the clamshell quilting on the last quilt resembles todays machine-quilted bubbles. I was wondering the other day if anyone ever attempts doing the bubbles by hand, and by golly, this quilter pretty much did back then !
Awesome quilts.....thanks for sharing ...... we might never have seen them otherwise !
