Mom's secret quilt stash

This is another vintage quilt from my mother's house.  When we had to clean out her house to move her in the back of a closet were quilts that no one seems to remember.  I was so thrilled because I got them all.  This really cute quilt is made of obviously authentic vintage fabrics and has a scalloped edge.  I love the pastels and the few bold prints.  This is such an easy pattern - one block is a 4 patch and right next to it is a block of 2 triangles.  Easy and cute.  I just love the edging though.

So we suspect these quilts were made by one of my Great Grandmothers dating this back to the early 1900's.  What a find!  You just never know what you will find when you clean out a house!
