Triple Irish Chain from the 80's

This quilt was made for my son, Eamon, when we adopted him in 1985.  It was made by my friends in a quilting group in Miami, Florida, at that time called the "Rose Quilters". (Named after my husband's 80 bush rose garden!)  Of course when we adopted two children all the roses died.  Who knew how much work children were?? :)  So anyway, this quilt is hand quilted through chintz, changing thread as they went.  It was an arduous work of love.  It is my understanding that an antique quilt is 100 years old, a vintage quilt is one made before what is a quilt from the 80's or 70's,etc.?  Is it just plain old??  Help me out here..
