Vintage Quilt Finds...

While in Florida for Thanksgiving, I found these amazing quilt tops in an antique store...

Quilt tops fascinate me...why weren't they finished? What is the story behind the person who put it together? Where did they get the fabrics? The day dreamin' about its history is endless...

So many textures and colors on this fan pattern quilt top!

Check out this loud 9-patch quilt! It has such great traditional, subdued prints mixed with loud, bright prints. And that gold plaid? So much fun!

You can almost feel the polyester pants that the quilter was wearing when they made this!

Want to know why I fell in love with this loud quilt top? Check out those hand stitches!
I can't wait to add some modern fabrics to these and see how they turn out!
