My main intent here is to share my vintage and antique quilt collection. It is not my intent to write history. I will certainly try to direct you to other sites that will do a much better job giving you historical information on patterns and designs. And if anyone in Blogland has more info on any antique quilts I have, even better. Quilt lovers gathering to share about antique quilts.

Little Dutch Girls
I am not sure of the name of this pattern. She looks a little Dutch to me. I have several variations. But as yet have not found a source for the pattern. I have looked in Rose Alboum Quilt Indexes, a valuable resource for quilt pattern identification. I have searched- Aunt Martha, Home Art Studio, Capper Publications, and Ladies Art Company. No luck in BB Encyclopedia of Applique. I think someone called them Red Riding Hood. But would love to know the original source for the pattern.
These quilts are all from my collection.
Some of the little girls are holding flowers.
A before and after of a top a took apart.
Some look sweet and others look a little scarey.
This one is not the same, but interesting and I have never seen the pattern for this one.
If you know or have any ideas let me know.
