Besides quilt blocks, another item we come across from time to time is a bunch of precut pieces for quilts. Sometimes squares, triangles or diamonds, but this time we found a bunch of hexagons.
All great fabrics from the 1880′s and 90′s, the hexagons measure 3 inches across, and right now are being offered on our eBay store. There are 75 different prints, plus a few extras.
We have many more bits of old fabric, and we’ll be making up more assortments soon, including more hexagons and of course our perennial scrap offerings.
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:
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:
And coming in the near future will be more album patch blocks, hexagon star blocks, and early ones with crescent moons and stars:
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.
