I love antique quilts. Here is one that I just bought. Isn't it amazing how creative women were when they only had fabric from old shirts, dresses etc. We are so lucky to have the resources out there to find fabric of all colors and shades until we have just the right combination to make our quilt look fabulous. Some are talented enough to dye their fabric until they achieve the pattern and texture they want as well. Yet long ago women went out of the box by finding a small amount of some bright color and incorporating it into their quilt to make their personal statement. Like here where she found a great red and popped it in one block on the entire quilt. She complimented it with the blocks using the peach/orange. How amazing is that.
