Handmade antique quilts star in online auction May 14
Whether used as a comfy bed covering or hung from a rack to decorate a wall, quilts have been present in American homes since Colonial days. In the 17th and 18th centuries, quilts were considered a necessary part of a bride’s hope chest. The best examples of the quilters’ art often remained there and survived in excellent condition. A large collection of antique quilts in vivid colors, intricate hand-stitched patterns and eye-dazzling designs will be sold at a Jasper52 online auction on Thursday, May 14.
