Tips for Collecting Antique Quilts Are Also Included!
Vintage and antique quilts have a special place in most quilters’ hearts. Besides being visually appealing, just think of all the stories they could tell! It’s fun to explore the fabrics and designs and imagine what these quilts have seen over the years as well as the people who have loved them.
Whether you’re a collector or not, you’re sure to enjoy this collection of quilts reproduced from antiques. The authors, Linda Collins and Leah Zieber, have based the patterns on antique quilts in their collections.
The authors also provide great tips for finding antique quilts. They cover pricing, what to look for and what to walk away from.
Each quilt pattern is shown with the antique quilt that inspired it. It’s interesting to see how the authors interpreted the antique quilts for today’s quilters as well as the beautiful results. We’ve included several of our favorite patterns here.
Thirteen quilt patterns are included in the collection. All of the quilts will be beautiful using prints that give them a vintage look or with more modern fabrics. This lovely book is sure to provide inspiration for many years to come.
The paperback version is currently on sale at Connecting Threads. Click here to check for availability.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
