Piece N Quilt: Antique Quilts pieced my Natalia's great-grandmother, machine quilted by Natalia Bonner If I ever do an English Paper pieced quilt, this might be it.


I've saved a bit of each fabric from every quilt I've ever made. When I make my own postage stamp quilt one day, I will use those scraps and sleep beneath my memories!

The most important clues to the age of a quilt are the stiches, the fabric and the design used. It must be remembered that fabrics, especially those used for patchwork and applique, often started their lives as other things (dresses or curtains) before becoming scraps and then part of a quilt, so they may be much older then quilt itself.
