  2. I honor those who have taken care of these old quilts. So beautiful. I'm imagining silk is a difficult fabric to quilt with?

  6. Superb Frederique! Ladies here - especially from the older generations - have made designs as in Baskets and Stars and the Early American Medallion Quilt.

  7. Such wonderful pieces of art left unsigned? It's sad that the makers can't be acknowledged directly but kudos to their talent.

  15. Here's to all the anonymous artists who do it purely for beauty and not recognition!

  16. These pieces are from the 1800s? Meaning they did everything by hand? Mind - blown!

  17. What a clever X entry! It's a wonderful reminder as well to always sign your work. Sailor's tumbling block has me awestruck imagining how much effort and time went into producing such a lovely piece.

  19. How wonderful all the quilts are. I love to crochet. It's nice that now that I'm retired I have the time to do my most favorite hobby & I love to watch old movies and right now I'm watching all the series to "Highway to Heaven" with Michael Landon. You Tube has just about everything. Your quilts are amazing. Thank you for sharing. My A to Z is about old movies. Have a nice day and Stay Healthy. Stay Safe, and STAY HOME! hugs

  22. What a lovely set of quilts. Crazy Quilt and baskets and stars are the ones I like best.

  23. We have a quilt made by my husbands Grandmother who used the fabric from his Grandfathers old shirts. My husband can remember seeing his Grandfather wearing them before they were put into the quilt. Lovely memory quilt. I make baby quilts for all the babies that keep appearing in our families and friends lives! I believe every baby deserves their very own little quilt!

  24. I am torn by this question of signatures - with the incredible atrists you have introduced us to, it seems right that they are recognized by their signature but then when you come across an old piece of quilting in someone's house or a charity shop, there is something beguiling about the idea of the unknown quilter...
    And these are beautiful, especially the really vintage ones.

  25. Using X for unknown makers... brilliant!

  26. It's sad that quilting wasn't respected as the artform it is back in the day. I bet those quilters thought they had done nothing special.

  27. I was wondering how you were going to use X. Nicely done (so were all the quilts).

  28. Grapes & Leaves is my favorite, but they are all lovely, as usual. Your blog has really made me appreciate quilts. Thank you!
