Antique Bowtie Crib/Doll Quilt- Starley Quilt Collection

Such a charming little antique treasure! The diagonal seams create a bowtie effect and you can never go wrong with a flying geese border.  **And note, as I mentioned previously, the mix of prints and plaids/checks. Don't forget that when you are making reproduction quilts.

Here's the full quilt -found by Molly at Fourth Corner Quilts. Quilt is circa 1850s

 And a closeup of the the blocks and borders.


  1. I am really enjoying these antique quilts -- thanks so much for sharing!! this would be a fun one to re-create!

  2. I'm very fond of a flying geese border myself. Thank you for sharing.
