I promised to add more photos of my parents, Al and Merry Silber ~ and some of the antique quilts in their collection.
I have just returned from eight days in Michigan with my folks. My Mom's 95th birthday was July 10 ~ We had a great party for her.
I got out a few more of their quilts and took some photos.
And here she is examining a turn-of-the-century quilt called "Rattlesnake" or Mohawk Trail."
Mom has a special love for indigo and white quilts of the 19th century.
The one above is called "Orange Peel."
Below is a detail of a design Mom always called "Kaleidoscope." I'll have to check my books to see if that is a traditional name for it.
All three of the blue and white quilts shown here have curved seams.
There is more to come on my folks' wonderful quilts...
