A picture is worth a thousand words.
A brief description of this antique reproduction quilt top:
The size is a single hand applique block. All the stars are created by Reverse Applique by hand.. The finished size is about 44″ x 50″ square.
We made these as the perfect centerpiece for QOV quilt tops. They are recreating a Civil War original designed baby quilt that has been published many times.
The fabrics used in these works are all 100% cotton. Each is hand appliqued either needle turn applique or Reverse applique techniques, (or a combination of them both). We do not use the freezer paper, or “English applique” techniques as they have the extra paper under the appliques which provide an inferior product.
Let us please explain what they are NOT.
These are NOT cheaply made pre printed designs.
These are NOT cheap Machine Appliqued quilt designs.
These are NOT made of light weight fabrics in China like many vendors on eBay.
These are NOT a kit, that you will need to assemble or applique yourself.
Our quilt tops are NOT a quilt that will be used for a short period, and then thrown away, they will be cherished for a lifetime.
Now let us explain to you what these are – and why we make them.
We have had a love for quilt making since our founding in 1967, and are proud to be celebrating nearly a half a century making fine quilts.
Our quilt tops are made with very high quality hand work.
We love the look of traditional American applique and patchwork quilts & quilt tops. It is not possible for everyone to enjoy a expensive antique quilt daily without the quilt suffering possible damages. With our quilt tops, you get the best of both worlds. You get the look and feel of a very expensive quilt, at a price that allows you to enjoy it daily.
Many of our quilts are recreations of priceless originals in museums from around the world. These quilts are worth many thousands of dollars and up. You can enjoy our finished custom quilts for a small fraction of that price, & it will become a heirloom in its own right in your home.
Our quilts are works of love & of the art of quilt making. Many of our hand applique tops take hundreds of hours to complete. Our pricing reflects only a very small price for the efforts of our skilled needle workers.
All of our quilts are completed right here in the USA.
