This cold snowy weather is the best time of year for me to share with you one of my favorite antique quilts. I was not searching for it. A woman who had a couple of quilts wanted to find out the date of one of them, not a very exceptional quilt, but she was happy to know￼ that it was vintage. She also brought along this one, which she really had no use for.
I purchased this quilt for a very minimal sum. I knew right away that it dated to about 1890 to 1910. The black fabrics are very typical of that period.￼ The pattern is a variation of the log cabin quilt. This one is called courthouse steps.￼
The most unusual feature is the fabric, which is heavy drapery type, and the quilt is indeed very￼ heavy, ideal to keep you cozy and warm on a cold night.￼
I wish you all a cozy warm time with your loved ones.
