Depression Era, Green and Cheddar Orange Vintage Quilt

Customer Quilts | December 27, 2014 | By

This is a recent customer finish on a vintage 1930’s pieced top, made in the classic depression green and cheddar orange colors of that era. It was made by an aunt and tucked away in a drawer for many years!
 Taking a vintage/antique quilt and giving it a modern twist is my choice. I know it’s not for everyone and there are those that would rather see a traditional finish, possibly hand quilted. I LOVE to hand quilt, but because of time constraints, it’s not always feasible. I opt for finishing a quilt, rather than keeping it hidden away for no one to enjoy. That old adage, “it’s not a quilt till it’s quilted!”, has become my mantra. My secret mission is to save all the forgotten and stashed quilt tops of the world!
I’m always a fan of the quilt back! You get a sense of the real quilting and the design elements used on the front. Enjoy your day!

    Backs are beautiful too when you are fortunate enough to have Kelly Cline quilt for you. Beautiful once again.
