Quilt Flap

This blog is for and about vintage and antique quilts and the folks who love them. We get together and show our quilts. Hence the term 'quilt flap,' as in, drag-n-brag or show-n-tell. Starting in coastal North Carolina, a region of the American South with lots of history and mosquitoes, we hope other people will join us as we search out textile treasures and share them on this blog.

Fabrics I Have Loved

I love prints with clear Art Deco designs. True, for many quiltmakers these prints are a challenge. I mean, just how do you cut these things up and sew them back together in patchwork?!

Maybe not at all. I have some fabrics that will never get sliced since they're just too pretty like they are and besides, I haven't found, or designed, a good enough quilt pattern to showcase them properly. Or maybe I just like to pet them.

Boldly outlined pansies (I think) and the suggestion of cherries.

And a length of curtain fabric with swirly roses reminiscent of Charles Rennie Makintosh, the Scottish designer and painter, whose work I love and whose influence is still being felt today although many folks don't know about him.
