    When does a fabric become "vintage"?

    When does a quilt go from being "old" to being an "antique"?

    I used to think anything 25 years older than me was an antique.

    Now, I'm an antique!

    Technically, I think 25 years or older is considered vintage, and 100 years or older is "antique".
