|Weddingring quilt 1930s, my wedding quilt is from 1954|
so a little bit younger. But similar fabrics.
No way you can date them exactly but looking at other antique quilts, compare them to my own quilts and blocks can give you some clues. But only like late 1800s, around 1900, 1930s - 1940s. It's wonderful to touch the old quilttops and asking yourself 'why didn't she finished this quilt'. Did she lost interest, did she die, became sick, to busy with taking care of the family, or didn't she like the fabrics anymore so many reasons.
|1930s Grandmothers flower. |
Marne brought me just one like this from her church,only much more faded.
So interesting to see that it has the same small green strips.
I will show you some pictures when I'm back home.
|Irish chain around 1890. I love the combinasion of muslin and|
the dark brown fabrics and men shirts. They're so typically late 1800s.
|Lovely old quilttop arond 1870, way over my budget ; ).|
|Still there are lots and lots of orphan blocks to buy.|
I found two interesting Sun Bonnet Sue. There are lots of things
you can do with these old orphan blocks.
