I’m really excited about a new series I’m planning to host in 2014 called Vintage Quilt Sunday. I love vintage quilts–they appeal to both the quilter and the historian in me, and provide so much inspiration.
I thought it would be fun to put together a series that highlighted quilts that you, your family members, your best friend, etc. love and/or have in your possession. I also plan to share a few from my own family (including more about this one!), and then share some that I have found in different archives that are pretty fantastic!
If you are interested in sharing a favorite vintage quilt (and a story behind it if you have one), please send me a quick email at swimbikequilt at gmail dot com and attach a picture of the quilt/sketch of the story. I would love to ask a few questions about the quilt, and of course, I won’t share any photos you send without your written permission.
If you know of someone who has a great quilt they might be willing to share photos of, please send me an email as well and I can contact them. Quilts can be appliqued, pieced, embroidered, etc., and don’t have to be “family” quilts.
Isn’t this a cute picture? It was taken in my Grandma’s Antique Room and it appears my daughter appreciates vintage quilts as well (picture from October 2011).

I am looking for quilts that are beautiful, quilts that have great stories, quilts that are funky or fun, quilts that are unique, quilts that were made by your great great grandmother–basically, great vintage quilts. I will be posting on Sundays, and once a month I plan to post a block tutorial based on one of the vintage quilts featured here.
