Dove in the Window Antique Quilt




Today's Antique Quilt is "Dove in the Window"
This quilt is all hand pieced and hand quilted.



The doves are made up of diamonds. Tried to get a close up to see if you see the piecing.
It has some really nice fabrics in it too!!

The quilting is on the diagonal in two rows.

It has a few water stains on it but I love it!!

Would like to draft it up one day for a pattern.
There was a quilt of the same block, but larger at Linda's Quilts in the Barn show. It was lovely. Take a look at her blog to see it in the second photo.
Hope you enjoyed show and tell.
Tomorrow night is Baby Janes at Lilly Patches so will have some photo's over the weekend.
Saturday's road trip is to Tyabb to visit Magic Patch Quiltshop. I'm sure some treasure's will follow us home!! Will take some photo's for you all.
Hope you have a fun quilting weekend too.

  1. WOW what a little beauty..there's something very speciall about antique quilts.

    The two R&W quilts that i bought at QITB finally found their way home today, thanks to my dear friend, Robyn, who kindly offered to collect them & look after them for the past two weeks. btw she also happened to admit that it was tempting to hang onto them lol!!
    cheers...Marian
