I've never been too interested in 30's quilts, a little to "perky" for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed listening and seeing Kathy Kansier's collection. http://www.kathykansier.com Our local Art museum and quilt guild brought her in for a series of lectures and classes (on many different quilt subjects). She's a very talented quilter and teacher. She gave me permission to share a few of her 30's quilts with you. She collects 30's quilts with special boarder treatments. These were some of my favorites. This first one is hand appliqued and quilted, beautifully. I'm not a pink person but this was beautiful.
This edge treatment follows the points of the fan blocks.
Close up of the appliqued yo-yo's.
This quilt had spider web quilting designs all over done with black thread.
Another fan quilt in a different setting pattern. (can't remember the name)
Another fan variation with a different setting, "ice cream cone" boarders.
