A snowball quilt made by Mary Louise Peters' great-grandmother in 1910.
Thank you, Joline, for helping hold our antiques.

Mary Smith's Iris quilt top was made in 1939 by her aunt as a wedding gift for her parents.
Never finished, Mary is hand quilting it using a quilting design in the Mountain Mist pattern the top was made from.


Liz Trouant found this antique Variable Star quilt in a trunk in the shed of her family's homestead in Cumberland, ME.
She believes it is dated late 1800s.

Mary Anne Spearin and her husband Ronny, received this antique Butterfly quilt as a wedding gift in September 2007.
Maker unknown.

Mary Anne shows a Boston Commons quilt purchased at an antique shop in Columbia Falls, ME.  Maker unknown.

Bonnie Hunter spied this Crosses quilt in the window of The Dusty Rose Antique Shop in Calais, ME, in early February 2008.
She hinted to her husband, Rob, that she'd seen a beautiful antique quilt, thinking it would make a nice Valentine's Day gift (their anniversary, too).  On February 14, the quilt was still in the window of the shop so she bought it and gave it to him as an anniversary gift!  He laughed when he opened it; maybe next time he'll take the hint!  Maker unknown.

During Ronny's initiation into the world of Pine Tree Quilt Shows, he and soon-to-be wife, Mary Anne, stopped at an estate sale in Aurora, ME on the way to Augusta and bought this Churn Dash quilt.  Maker unknown.

A precious Sunbonnet Sue quilt made by Mary Anne's grandmother.
The fabrics in the quilt show just how poor families of the era were.
