Rustic Chic Indigo and White Quilts

Indigo and White Ocean Waves; 1879 Pennsylvania

If you’re like most of the people I know, you’re aching to throw the windows wide open and let in the fresh air and sunshine. And what could possibly say summer more than a graphic indigo and white quilt?  Betsy Telford, owner of Rocky Mountain Quilts (www.rockymountainquilts.com), has some of the most beautiful antique blue and white quilts around.

The rustic chic examples shown here are 19th century and were made in Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York.  Pay special attention to the witty names of each example.

Now can’t you just wait to snuggle under one?
