We are Jack and Susan Davis, owners of Olde America Antiques and American Quilt Blocks in Bozeman, Montana. We began collecting in the 1970s and founded Olde America Antiques in 1988. Our business has evolved from antique postcards and ephemera into a fine art printing company that produces high-quality prints on cloth.
Susan Davis, owner of Olde American Antiques and American Quilt Blocks, has created a series of original quilt block designs to pay tribute to the National Park Service Centennial 1916-2016. These are the first quilt blocks created specifically for the National Park Service.
Susan plans do produce more than 50 quilt blocks in this series. Susan has a background in graphic design and was a member of the Montana Historic Quilt Project in 1987. Susan and her husband, Jack, founded Olde America Antiques in 1988 with a focus on national park postcards and ephemera. This business evolved from antiques to a fine art printing company in 1998. Susan always wanted to produce national park images on cloth for quilters. The technology for high-quality 8-color printing on cloth was only recently developed. Susan and Jack were among the first to produce genuine 8-color giclee prints on cloth.
Susan has created new, original quilt block designs for the National Park Service. Each of these designs is unique with a distinct color combination, the name and nickname of the park, and a matching border to enhance the overall design. The style of these designs is influenced by the American Arts and Crafts movement.
We have amassed an extensive collection images. Susan is a long-time quilter and always wanted to print on cloth for quilters. The technology to do fine art printing on cloth was only recently developed. Susan’s passion for collecting and her commitment to quilting has resulted in this business.
