Antique Quilts

While cruising Ebay this morning I ran across 3 wonderful Antique Quilts. Being broke I decided that since I can't own them I will reproduce them in miniature. This first one is from the 30's/40's, I love the combo of pink and brown. I think I will redo this one in Civil war era fabrics.

I have no clue when this one was made as it didn't say in the auction. I love the pattern of the blocks, it one I have never seen before - does anyone out there in blogland know what it is called??? I think the border fabric makes the quilt look a little busy so I'll change it to a soild.

This one is from the 40's . I though it was so pretty :) I have a ton of blue fabric that would go wonderfully into a repo of this quilt. I need to get some red soild before I can start it though. Keep an eye on the blog over the next couple of weeks as I'll be posting some more mini quilt tutorials on these quilts as I make them :) Have a great day !!
