Way last spring Sandra Starley a quilt historian had these antique quilts at a show in S.L.C. They were all quite remarkable and thought I'd share them with you today.
The above hexagon quilt is from the 1880's.
Log cabin quilts and Courthouse Steps quilts have always been some of my favorite. So when I saw this one I wanted to have a photo. I recognize several reproduction fabrics that are similar to these original ones found in this quilt. I love how some of the strips have been pieced to made do.
I love two color quilts and this one is not an exception. The signature makes it all the more special. "A women wishing not to be forgotten signs her name to cloth."
Hand quilted and pieced.
Farmer's Fancy. Sandra's business is called Time Travels.
This photo is from this past spring market in S.L.C. I always seem to gravitate towards the antique quilts. I love to admire them and think of the women who made them......always wondering about their stories.
Isn't this a sweet wee quilt?

Christmas is almost upon us, and many of us our looking forward to be with family and our traditions. We will celebrate Christmas eve., with our daughters and their husbands, and look forward to being together again this year. We are sorry that our Ohio family will not be with us. It takes a wee bit of the joy away.
