Don't you just love old quilts?

Not too much to say...enjoy the pics of what we have been coveting!


So many lovely quilts...


What are there stories...


How did they end up here?


Who made them...


And why...


How many can I take home...


which do I love the most?



We have a new appreciation for their time and skill....


Need to slow and enjoy the process...


More handpiecing coming up!!


We have learnt so much.

The scrappy hexie is so beautiful. I love old quilts especially if they come with their story attached.

Beautiful quilts. I agree their stories do get you wondering. I agree with the other girls. Throw some clothes out of your suitcase.
