Antique Quilts at 2009 Vermont Quilt Festival






Here are some photos I took of antique quilts on display at this past summer's VQF. The sophistication of the graphic images always takes me by surprise. We think our quilting foremothers were just pitifully hobbling together clothing scraps for bed covers, when in actuality they were making real, and real gorgeous, art. These are a few of my favorites.
