  1. Lynn, a few days ago I ran across a small crib quilt very much in this style at an antique mall. It appeared to be vintage, excellent condition, and nicely hand quilted. The price was dirt cheap. Unfortunately I just don't know enough about this style and the period these quilts were made, so I passed it up, afraid that the Chinese have been able to copy quilts such as these fairly authentically. Do you know if companies are reproducing quilts like these?

    1. I have not seen any yet. The imports are getting better and it is hard to tell sometimes. I have a large collection of vintage and antique kit crib quilts and hope to post more here. Just need to get those photos taken.

    2. I love vintage baby and kids quilts! I wish somebody would re-issue some of these! I know it's not too hard to figure out a design, but I just don't want to have to do that, I'd rather pick up a pattern.
