Another Antique Quilt on Ebay

I just added another antique quilt to my eBay store… it will be visible at 8:00 Eastern time today, March 2, 2008. This quilt was made in the 1930’s, and has absolutely stunning hand quilting. The quilt has been in my posession for over 20 years now, and I still marvel at the exquisite quilting. The quilt measures 74 x 92 inches, and has a narrow white binding. This is a great example of 1930’s fabrics… each of the little leaves has been painstakingly appliqued, and the stems are all of a consistent narrow width. The batting is quite thin, which explains how the quilter was able to manage such tiny stitches! The quilting motifs are lovely, and a faint pencil line can be seen if you look closely. There is one small stain on the back that does not penetrate through to the front, otherwise the quilt is in fantastic condition. See the photos on Ebay for a close-up of this area.

This quilt will be a great addition to your collection!

Antique Quilt on Ebay

I put this antique quilt on Ebay last night called “Pink Quilt.”
This quilt dates back to the early 1930’s and is notable for the wide assortment of attractive and eye-catching printed fabrics from that period. A very pleasing balanced design featuring a framed center square placed on point and two wide pastel borders enlivened by the two One Patch borders.
The quilt has been hand-pieced and hand-quilted with a heavy cotton batting. Although the quilting stitches are not super tiny, they are very even and form a simple cable design in the border and the long pink strips of the quilt.
The quilt is in good condition for its age. A few tiny brown stains are visible, but only a few, and they are smaller than the size of my smallest fingernail.
This quilt can be seen on page 50 of the book Contemporary Quilts from Traditional Designs by Caron Mosey. I will be adding one or two more antique quilts this weekend as well. I’m running out of storage space for quilts, so I thought I’d pass this one along for someone else to enjoy. It really is a nice quilt!

Quilting and the Flintstones

Remember the TV cartoon, “The Flintstones”? It was a favorite of mine when I was a little girl. I liked Barney. He was short, a follower, but he could have a temper when he wanted. This little block made me remember Pebbles Flintstone, Fred and Wilma’s daughter. The Dear Jane block is called “Pebble’s Protest,” A-11.
Dean and I are cleaning house. I have 8 books on Ebay right now. Check them out at . He is also listing a bunch of old comic books and instruments at .
I also have a partial bolt of Hunter Green solid 100% cotton fabric from about 15 years ago. It’s still on the bolt, and I’m not sure how much is there, but there’s a lot. If you are interested, contact me by email. My email address is caronmosey at gmail dot com.
