John Sauls has been entertaining us at the QuiltHistorySouth Facebook
group with pictures of quilts that have passed through his hands over the years.
For quite a while he's bought and sold quilts out of Tyler, Texas
so many of his quilts have a Southern flair.
This star is pieced of fair ribbons
Some he likes so much he has kept them (many dealers
have a collection of absolute favorites)
like this one of early blocks probably set a little later.
But most of them over the years---they come: they go.
Buying in Texas, he's seen many examples of Southern favorites...
Princess Feather or Watermelon?
He's seen many Whig's Defeat designs
Perhaps you recall his booths at shows
or when he had the store in Tyler.
A block from a late-19th-century sampler
The picture he took is date-stamped 1992
So you can see his inventory pictures stretch back
a few decades.
A sampler way west of Baltimore....
He's fond of alphabet quilts...
Top left side: an early bird.\
And of course he's seen some that are Southern quirky.
Like these wedding ring offspring.
Quite a few stars
22 quilts in this post---all sold.
I have copied 125 pictures to my John Sauls file. We are grateful to dealers who take the time to post their inventory current or past.
