You’ve probably figured out by now that I’m a sucker for old quilts. I pretty much love everything about them – the fabrics, the designs, the artistry, and the work that went into them. I think it’s that scrappy, ‘make it do’ aspect that I love the most. Creating something beautiful from the limited resources that were available is what inspires me most.
Anyway, I photographed a few that I came across over the summer months and realized that I’d never shared them and decided why not do so today. These first two photos were from the Beehive House in downtown Salt Lake City.
The other quilts come from This Is The Place State Park – kind of a Sturbridge Village type of place, recreating the early settlement of Salt Lake City. My kids love going there and we try to get there at least once each summer.
