Quilt Tops

I often mention in my classes that new quilters should pick up eBay quilt tops in order to practice their skills.  Today, I decided to pick up a few “US-made quilt tops” and quilt them as “eBay Quilt Top” examples to show students.  I guess you could say I am going to practice what I teach.

So what did I buy?   Check out this log cabin quilt from eBay seller, jeano1961:

Look at all that lovely blank spaces to place some cool designs?

Here is a 1930’s vintage Dresden Plate quilt pattern using feed sack material in the Dresden Plates.  This beauty is in excellent shape:

Again, can you see some stunning quilting motifs in the yellow blocks?

And here is a lovely Pineapple Blossom scrap quilt:

Can’t wait to quilt them later in the year!  I will have fun designing them!

Anyone else ever buy nice quilt tops off of eBay?   Take care, Carla

  2. I bought one off e-bay this week — a large sunshine & shadow Amish type quilt in blues — I’ll just need to add a border and get it quilted.
