Early Quilt Blocks Galore

One of the things we’ve been selling a lot lately has been antique quilt blocks. Here are a few pictures of ones that we’ve recently sold:
economy 9-patch blocks
4-patch blocks
round blocks
triangle blocks
star blocks

The variety of fabrics in these early blocks is fascinating; a collector or student of antique cotton fabrics would have to enjoy seeing many of these, as I have.  Among some of the blocks we’ve sold, the same fabrics have turned up repeatedly – in a few cases I believe the blocks were made by the same seamstress.

But we’re not close to running out.  Here are some of the blocks we currently have for sale on eBay:

variable star blocks
 blocks
album patch blocks

And coming in the near future will be more album patch blocks, hexagon star blocks, and early ones with crescent moons and stars:
hexagon star blocks
moon & star blocks

There are many more still to be unearthed, so stay tuned to our eBay offerings.

And while we’re looking at early fabric, we found some that was never made into blocks – it’s also in our eBay store.

Early fabric lovers, enjoy!
