    I should have mentioned that they are probably from the late 1800's - early 1900's.

    Please keep in mind that your "antique" quilt is only as old as the newest fabric in it. I have several antique quilts and I am not at all bothered by new repairs that make them usable or as decor. Good luck!

    Being a former seller of antiques, I personally would prefer to keep it authentic. I realize it is one's own opinion or preference.
