    We went to this show today. I was not expecting antique quilts, but that's what was there! They were amazing! Some dated back to the 1830's!!! I couldn't take pictures of the ones I wanted because they have copyright issues, but they're so amazing.

    Here's pictures of the ones I was able to take. Bear with me, there's a lot!

    I think my favorites are the alphabet one and the swirly one. I was told that the quilting pattern you see in a lot of these quilts is typical southern style. It goes in half swirls...i don't know if you can see it, but I thought I'd share.

    Also the quilts with dates on them, are the actual dates they were made. One from 1909 and one from 1905...awesome.

    Most of these quilts are in some state of degeneration, as you can see in some of the quilts, but I think theyre still beautiful! It just makes my jaw drop on the floor with the patience and beauty of some of these quilts!

    WOW!! Those are fantastic. I can only imagine what the rest were like. I can't believe that one was dated 1903. Thanks so much for posting the pictures-I felt like I was there.
