'Quilting Through the Ages' Antique Quilt Exhibit, Part 2

I'd like to share a few more photos from the antique quilt exhibit I attended last month:

Exhibitor Janice Edwards.
"Won by my mother at a church raffle in the 1940's"

1930's Yo Yo quilt

Exhibitor Amy Hermann
Quilt was made in 1890's by the exhibitor's great great grandmother,
Laura Ellen Davis Coffman, who lived in Salem, Indiana.

This still life was photographed through the case it was in so there is some glare.
"This [sewing] kit was secondhand when given to Grace Davison in 1910."

New York Beauty
Exhibitor Sally Macfadyen
"1850, rare. Hand pieced with early sewing machine quilting. Red turkey work
pointed fans have machine embroidered flowers with stems and leaves.
White background is done in a machine quilted diagonal grid.
Beige sashing (might have been green at one time) has a
running snail design. This is hard to do on an old treadle machine."

I hope you enjoyed seeing these beautiful quilts. I sure did!
