|Grandmother's Fan Quilt|
1930's maker unknown
|Dresden Plate Detail|
I saw a number of quilted and other textile items scattered throughout the store, and in fact, purchased a few very pretty embroidered hankies. One of the best quilts for sale was a Dresden Plate quilt from the 1930's, looked to be handstitched and hand quilted. These quilts done in white and scraps are always so attractive, with such a feeling from the past.
|Ohio Star Quilt|
Date and Maker unknown
The other quilt that I really liked was still in a bag, and had just come into the store. Opening it up revealed a very striking two-colour Ohio star quilt, very nicely made, date and other information unknown.
I'm not in antique stores very often, and it might be fun to poke around in there one rainy afternoon, to really look at all the other antique stuff, as well as any other quilts they happen to have on hand.
