My parents have been collecting antique quilts for about 40 years. They may be the oldest living collectors of antique quilts ~ they are, FOR SURE, the Cutest!

Blue and Whites are probably her "favorites," but she has a

I'll take more photos of them and their quilts then.
Stay tuned if you like this thread!
