Friday Fab links

Do you have any family heirloom quilts?...vintage?
Or have you purchased vintage quilts at a thrift or antique shop?
Maybe you already know what to do to keep them
"well and healthy"...how to launder or repair.



But, for those of you who might like more info,
maybe you would like to check out the links below.





~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Do YOU have any OLDER quilts that need repairs?
Or if they are still in good condition, how do you
take care of them?
I'd LUV to hear about any wonderful Vintage quilts
that grace your life at this time!

I have two wonderful old quilts that my mom remembers from their being in her grandmother's house. They are in pretty sad shape, though,so I look forward to seeing what these links you shared have to say.
I also have an "older" quilt made for ME by two "little old ladies" when I turned 15(what a special gift!). I need to get it out and ENJOY it.
Happy weekend, Annie!

I have no older quilts, heirloom quilts, or antique quilt. I DO appreciate such quilts when I see them. I made the quilts I have and I use and enjoy them everyday.

I have two quilts made by my grandmother - machine pieced but hand quilted. I have them stored in my quilt chest along with some of the quilts I've made. This is probably not the best way but I get to enjoy them since the front of the chest is glass.
Have a wonderful weekend, Annie!!

I have a quilt made by my husband's great grandmother, one by an aunt, and I have a very old "big stitch utility quilt made well over 100 years ago and bought at a garage sale for $20! I love them all!

My mother and I have several vintage quilt tops made by my grandmother and other older ladies we know. I hope to possibly finish one or two this year.

Thanks for sharing the links. :)

I have two...both in need of repair. I have a baby blanket that I love. I'm not sure if my Grandma made it or an Aunt. It's lots and lots of tiny triangles and some of them have come unstitched or the fabric has unraveled. I really love it, but it's usually stuffed in the closet. The other one (also stuffed in the closet) is an ABC quilt my made for me when I was little. The white fabric around the letters and embroidery that she did is torn badly on some of the blocks (I LOVE this quilt). I haven't really come across other vintage quilts. Thanks for the links!

Yes I do have two vintage quilts they are in pretty bad shape. I like the photo of vintage quilts.

I have an old wooden ladder in my guest bedroom. It has 4 rungs and each rung holds a folded quilt. It is in the corner, away from the window, so that I don't have to worry about fading the quilts.
