4 Vintage Quilts

Here are 4 vintage quilts that I treasure.

This log cabin quilt was pieced by my grandmother, Catherine Hawbaker and hand quilted in 1990 by my mother, Elaine Hawbaker Horst.....they were both very creative and talented quilters.

Not sure of the history behind this quilt...I know it came from my mother, but not sure if she pieced and/or quilted it.

Wish I had some yardage of this "funky" print :)

I'm thinking this comforter (it's tied not quilted) was made by my grandmother.  Although it may have been finished by my mother.

This gem is made from feed sack fabric, it is a comforter and is in bad shape.  I'm not sure if I ever used it, or if it came to me in this condition.  The batting is all wadded up and lumpy.....but I LOVE the prints and look.  Someday if I'm brave enough I may take the ties out, remove the back and put in new batting.....I'm afraid it will fall apart if I try.......but it's been in my cedar chest for so long, it really should be enjoyed.

The backing is a dark print.

These are some of my favorite prints.

I'd love to hear about any vintage quilts in your home.

I love the old quilts! I never thought to ask if there are old quilts in the family.
