Antique-Vintage Quilt Tops
Antique, vintage, patchwork or applique quilt tops that may be ready to quilt or just enjoy as found are offered on this page. Some of the old tops may be hand pieced and some are machine pieced which was commonly done, as many women were glad to get that first sewing machine and wanted to use it in quilt making. Not all tops I have are on the web site, so if you have something in mind that is not showing, please be sure and check with me on others.
