I cannot let go of the red and white quilt bug. That show back in March made such an impression on me. This is a photo of the antique red and white quilt I just bought. When I don't have time to sew (and I haven't for ages) I gravitate to antique quilt shopping instead. After all, I started quilting to reproduce the antiques I loved so much.
Here is a bit of a close up of the quilt. Did I mention I also love baskets quilts? Actually, I think these would be called Cake Stand. Who doesn't love cake?
Quilting makes the quilt and good quilting really makes me want the quilt. I like the double rows of quilting in this one. I must put that extra effort into my own projects.
One of the reasons I don't have time to quilt is work has taken me to great places like the Pacific Northwest. We don't have vistas like these on the east coast! (Squint to see the BIG mountain).
And, I treat myself to visiting great quilt shops like the Wild Rose Quilt Shop in Orting, Washington. The two best benefits to this shop? The wall of repros at the back of the shop and the uber friendly owners. Boy, did they ever make me happy to be there! Don't you love visiting a shop where the owners and employees actually act like they LIKE their customers?
