I enjoy collecting antique quilts and making reproductions of them both big and small. I've made a few baskets and I'd like to make more. I dabble in knitting and would love to learn rug hooking, but it's hard to find time to do it all. I work in higher education and I love my job. However, I do spend a lot of time dreaming about quilts.
My version of Lori's "Pink Lemonade" quilt-a-long is finished! I really think that old gold fabric makes it look like a piece of an old quilt. I had intended to bind in it a brown fabric but that red was hanging around on my sewing table just asking to join in. The little red flowers in the yellow and some red in the brown fabrics told it that it was welcome and I couldn't be happier with the result. It's hard to tell in the photo that it was hand quilted by Bellwether. Yes, another one - that's the only way I can get a finished project. I should have taken a photo of the back.
Last night I had the great treat of attending a presentation by Debby Cooney, quilt collector and quilt historian, at the Baltimore Applique Society. She showed at least 30 wonderful antique quilts. You can view photos of three of the quilts at the BAS Facebook page here.
