It was photographed and examined and all the information will be placed in a national database. The quilt was made approximately 1976-1979 (possibly a little earlier or later than that bracket of time) and cotton as well as synthetic fabrics were used, scraps I am sure owned by the maker from clothing items. It is rose, brown & light blue with little touches of other colors on an off-white field. The quilt was completely hand-pieced and hand-quilted. It is treasured.
While there, a lady didn't have her camera with her to take pictures of her quilt so I offered to photograph it for her and send her the shots in an email. She was very happy about my offer! You aren't allowed generally to photograph the other quilts, unless you have permission like I did. I saw many gorgeous quilts in the two hours I was there!
|Theirs was also a family heirloom.|
And a few of the "show and tell" items from the last Quilt Guild:
|A beautiful top made by my friend Paulette...the picture can't do it justice. It's really gorgeous!|
|This little girl made this quilt under the tutelage of her grandmother. It will be entered into our Junior Division at the Quilt Show. She was VERY cute showing it to all of us!|
