At our last quilt guild meeting the world famous Pat Holly was our guest speaker, she shared with us her antique quilt collection. Pat is famous for her quilts made entirely with her sewing machine, she has won many awards with them, including top awards from the AQS quilt show in Paducha, Kentucky. The antique quilts she collects all have machine work on them, be it the quilting or the piecing.
I posted them in order from the oldest to the newest, most from around 1890's. I tried to remember as much as I can about the quilt as she spoke, but I miss a lot while trying to photograph it. So, to all my antique quilt loving friends, enjoy the quilts, double click to see the workmanship a little closer.
This has an all over machine quilting pattern.
Fun tulips with a tulip boarder.
Matching tops. Still late 1800's.
A beautiful blue and white.
The appliqued polka dots in the lattice are too fun.
