Two vintage quilt tops–eye-popping color

7 08 2015

Here are two of my vintage quilt tops that I love a lot.  These are perhaps the oldest in my collection.

Beware–if you stare at these too long, your eyeballs might start to wiggle.

I decided to photograph them as tops and not quilts, since I don’t know when I will have a chance to get them quilted, and also because I might sell them and want to remember these two beauties.

When looking at the detail photograph, I can see the really wonderful fabrics used in the half-square triangles of the main blocks without the distraction of the yellow and the cheddar overwhelming them.

The second quilt top is a postage stamp pattern with really fabulous fabrics playing with each other.  Included in these small blocks are many lovely plaids and stripes.

I’m beginning to understand why I really like the Civil War reproduction fabrics, since they have much the same character as these authentic vintage fabrics.

Enjoy.
