My Favorite Antique CQ's

I regularly search on Ebay for antique CQ's and send the links to a few Internet Crazy Quilt mail lists that I belong to. Over the years, I have saved many photos of my favorites. I thought that I would post some of them for your enjoyment!

This fan quilt is one that I would like to do myself. I have started it several times but each time, I have been unhappy with my pattern and fabric selection. I will hopefully do it one day. Isn't it fabulous?

This is the inspiration for my 2012 CQ that I am currently working on. It really doesn't look much like mine except that it is on point and my border is designed like this. I also am thinking of doing my initials in the middle.

I do love the simplicity and graphic look of this CQ.
This, on the other hand, is not simple but I love the graphic nature of it.

The stitching is quite primitive but the design of the quilt makes up for it.

Isn't this amazing. It was on Ebay very recently. I never did see if it sold. I could see it selling for several thousand dollars. I don't know if it did.

I will post more of my favorite CQ's later. Now I am off to my sewing room. I just got re-inspired!
