Antique Quilts for Sale
These are all quilts that I bought because they fit into the lectures I was doing, or I wanted to repair them, or maybe they came as part of a group. In any case, it's time for them to find a new home. NONE of them are perfect. (Okay, maybe one or two snuck in there.) I like quilts with some damage because I feel you can learn more about the fabrics and construction. Plus I like having quilts that I don't have be anxious about when students handle them. I hope that you can find the special quilt that will make you happy, too:-))
