12 Stunning Vintage Quilts



In the midst of the great depression the department store Sears and Roebuck held a Quilt competition to celebrate not only the Chicago World Fair but also the skill of homemakers who were managing on so little.  The theme of the competition was a Century of Progress in honor of the 100yr anniversary of Sear’s hometown, Chicago.  Here are 12 quilts  from the Sears Challenge that really caught our eye, including this one by Anna Hansen.
