    Eye Candy - Four Old Quilts

    Four old quilts in very good condition arrived and I thought you might like to see them. The one with checks made my head spin! Enjoy

    I agree. Always neat to look at older quilts.

    Looking at the fabrics tells us these were certainly made from scraps of clothing, shirts, etc.....

    thanks for sharing your great collection with us.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Thanks for sharing, it's always a treat to me to see vintage items. I sometimes can see a story in the fabric used and the way it's put together.
