More antique quilt treasures from Manchester NH

Just loved this wild zigzag quilt from the 1920s at the Mill Yard Museum. It is an unusual pattern that I hadn't seen before. But in proof of 'everything old is new again', I found that Victoria Findlay Wolfe has created a very similar effect with new modern methods in her new book "Modern Quilt Magic".


And I can never resist a log cabin especially a graphic barn raising like this one

  1. Very special the V-shaped pattern, but always love a really traditional logcabin. Beautiful!

  2. Just enlarged the picture of that log cabin quilt.... the center and the rest, it looks like 2 different quilts! Did she change her mind? Did 2 people work on this? Was one of them not able to finish the blocks into a whole quilt? Looks like there is a story here.... I love that about the antiques <3
