Some Old String Quilts

Thought you'd like to see a few old string quilts I picked up recently on a trip to Tennessee.

Rocky Road to Kansas.  The antique dealer thought these were 1940's prints.  All hand pieced.

This one is all silkies--rayon dress prints I think.  The dealer thought they were pre-1940.

The blocks are about 4".

wow! lots to look at here. I like the top one with the kites and diamond shapes, and I like discovering all the prints in the second one. Many of them look like the "new" designer quilting cottons on the market right now. great finds! you've got the eye, girl!
