    The star quilt is from a kit. Not my favorite way of quilting but my husband bought the kit for me and one never complains when ones husband buys something. The log cabin is my most recent finished project. The tulip quilt is an old quilt inherited from an aunt through her brother (my father). This is a poignant illustration of why quilt labels are so necessary. This quilt is lacking one so I had no idea who made it, when or where it was made or the block pattern name. I don't think this aunt was a quilter so I've concluded she probably wasn't the maker. Then the mystery is, who did and why? I have since discovered it is called windblown tulips. As you can see it is made only of solid colors and has muslin on the back and was hand quilted. Does anyone have a guess as to when it may have been made. I know the decade when this particular pattern became popular which I won't mention now because I would like to hear your opinions. Thanks.

    The quilts you made are gorgeous! That kit quilt looks difficult! Kudos to you. Your log cabin is fabulous as well, great colors. Thx for sharing, wish I could help you with info on the tulips quilt. I'd appliqué a label to it with what you do know.

    Beautiful quilts! Based on the color of the tulips quilt, I would guess it's from the 30's, but I'm not an expert.

    I agree with PaperPrincess, late 20's -30's.

    I have a book called Mountain Mist Quilt Favorites that contains that quilt pattern. The book shows a quilt made in 1983 but includes this information--this pattern first appeared on Mountain Mist wrappers in l930. It is called windblown tulips and I would guess yours was made around that time-1930's. On a label you might put that the quilter is unknown, what you do know and when and where the pattern came from. BTW-all your quilts are beautiful.

    Love your quilts....I'd say the tulip quilt is early to mid 1930's...I'm no expert, but I love vintage and antiques. Thanks for posting.

    Absolutely beautiful. Years ago I use to buy the Mountail Mist polyeter quilt batting and I remember there was always a quilt pattern inside the package. I never made any nor saved any of them.

    The only thing I know, for sure, is that that particular green was most popular in the 30's.

    That log cabin... LOVE! Absolutely love it. You did such a stunning job. I really want to try them someday. And really, the colors on the star rock my world. I'm a rainbow girl all the way and that color wheel is just gorgeous.
