A Warm Welcome to you from
Rocky Mountain Quilts

Some of the finest artwork you can invest in and enjoy forever was created by American Women who were only trying to keep their families warm while at the same time showing their mark of excellence as skilled needle workers. Those amazing artists, 60 to 230 years ago, produced beautiful quilts that you can now own and display on your walls or your beds today. These genuine antique works of art, with their innovative designs, vivid colors and intricate patterns, made by some of our own American ancestors, will continue to appreciate in value and bring beauty and joy to you and your family for years to come, at prices far below those of other forms of art.

Thank you for your understanding

When clients come in the shop they see signs asking them please do not touch the textiles. All of the cotton quilts have been hand washed, and natural oils from our skin could stain the fabrics. After your hands are washed in our very clean washroom, then let's look at what you are searching for :-) I am fortunate that the antique quilt shop is in a barn attached to my home, giving me a 28 foot commute. My clients enjoy meeting our hypo-allergenic animals. We have a German Hunting Poodle who is a registered Therapy Dog, and two indoor-only hypoallergic Russian Siberian Forest Cats, who can often be seen sleeping on piles of quilts covered with protective sheets. People who love quilts also seem to love animals....and our animals love people.

Welcome to Rocky Mountain Quilts

If you view pictures of our quilts on the web or from an email, please remember that different computers, tablets, phones, and especially printers, all display colors differently. Also, in your home the colors will differ depending on the type of lighting: incandescent, fluorescent, LED, or sunlight. That is one reason why we send quilts on approval, so you can see how they actually look in your own home.

On this website, if you see shadows on a picture, they are from the photographer, they are not on the quilt.


Welcome to our online Antique Quilt Gallery where you can ask to see an Antique Quilt on Approval in the privacy of your home, or find information on our Quilt Washing and Quilt Restoration?

Over 95% of our antique and vintage quilts are in complete original condition, while many of the quilts are in unused condition. Our stuffed animals are created from over-loved antique quilts, ready to become someone's treasured friend.

We preserve every restored quilt's integrity by using only same date or older original fabrics. See our Restoration information page or call us.

Shopping is made easy with our policy of sending quilts to you for review in the privacy of your home before purchase. Please call us with questions about any of our antique quilts, quilt tops, quilt blocks and vintage fabrics - we're happy to help you.

We are located at the southern tip of Maine just 10 minutes from Portsmouth, NH in scenic York. Please call if you would like an appointment or an appraisal. Click here for detailed driving directions.
