Here are just a few photos of the amazing quilts I got to see up close:
|A signature quilt from Newfield, NY, dated 1853.|
|An amazing applique quilt. Every block is slightly different.|
|A very unusual pattern.|
We documented 35 quilts, and plan another date next fall to finish up. We hope to be entering all of these into the Quilt Index this fall/winter.
Speaking of treasure, our quilt group had our silent auction at our meeting last week. I got rid of a big box of rubber stamps and some books and rulers. This is what I bid on and took home:
Batting scraps are great for me, because I do a lot of quilt as you go. I need squares for quilt blocks and strips for sashing.
I wish you the joy of fall this week.
