December Quilting Blog-athon Time - Red and Green Antique Quilts

Cheryl (aka Muppin) Sleboda's Annual December 31 Days of Blogging Monthlong Blog-athon prompts me once again to post. Thanks Cheryl for the motivation. This is my 6th year joining in and blogging every day! 

Let's try for a month of Red and Green Antique Quilts.

Here's a charmer, a circa 1850 signature quilt likely from the Philadephia, Pennsylvania area which was the hotbed for signature quilts.

Intricate Oakleaf pattern with a delightful swag and bow border.

Many of the reds have damage due to the dyeing process -probably a metal that was used to create a black stripe on this print. 


  1. Oh what a treasure! I saw your quilt at NEQM on Saturday and it is glorious! Best antique green in that quilt. I adore it. I want 50 yards of it!! Looking forward to tomorrow's post.

  2. OOOoohhhhhh, this is going to be FUN! Looking forward to seeing the rest you have to show!

  3. Thank you for this series! I so look forward to the rest of the month's posts!


Thanks for visiting and commenting.
