Out and About:  Finding Old Quilts

While in Versailles (pronounced ver sails in Kentucky) a few weeks ago I had a bit of free time while waiting for my daughter.  I happened into a little vintage/antiques shop and found a sweet little log cabin and a few quilts.

I loved this little building but decided to leave it for someone else.

These quilts caught my eye.  Knowing I wasn't going to buy any of them, I didn't pull them out to examine them more closely.

I can't guess a date for either the quilt above or the quilt below.

And then there was this blue and white quilt.

The fabrics looked older, perhaps early 1900s, maybe earlier.

Blue is not one of my favorite colors but I'm a sucker for blue and white quilts.  Sadly, I left this one behind.

I left the store empty-handed except for some fun photos.

  1. Those are some beautiful quilts and I love that area of Kentucky. I might have taken that little house to my own home.


I appreciate your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Thanks for stopping by.
