Antique Inspiration

      For the GCQ program yesterday, June Fish presented a program on appraising quilts.  As part of her very informative presentation, she displayed several antique and vintage quilts.  Two of my favorite are displayed below. 

      Most of the vintage quilts in my family are very well loved utilitarian quilts made by my maternal grandmother; the latest finished about 1939.  Most of her quilts have been loved and used to pieces.  They were needed in her home to keep warm.  Today we use our quilts more for decoration and comfort.   I am thankful I am able to create quilts for my family and friends to enjoy.
