If the stitches are precisely uniform in size and spacing, the quilt was probably machine-stitched.

Many antique quilts were made in odd sizes that don't fit modern beds.

Certain patterns can help identify an antique quilt.

The double wedding ring pattern, for example, depicts two interlocking rings and is thought to have German origins.

Double pink is a similar hue; it depicts a dark-pink shade over a light-pink background.

Double pink was commonly seen in quilts from the 1860s to the 1880s as well as the 1920s.

A quilt made in the 1920s or earlier is also considered antique.
