Vintage Thursday Thingie: Vintage Leaf Quilt

This is a vintage applique quilt from the late 1940s in the Leaf pattern with an unusual center medallion of three "leafy" flowers. I love the variety of fabrics, including feed sacks in the leaves.

It is hand appliqued and hand quilted in an overall diamond pattern and around the applique leaves and stem.

I like how vintage 1940 fabric all seems to blend so well. Beautiful quilt. Thanks for sharing.

I always covet vintage/antique quilts. Of course I love this one & I just received a 30's/40's hand pieced top to longarm from a lady whose Grandma left it behind.I would love to live long enough to get caught up, lol!
