I’ve helped inventory the society’s quilts and coverlets, so I know there are some gems.

  1. That Single Irish Chain is one of the prettiest quilts I think I’ve ever seen! And it has a more contemporary look because of the way the pattern is interrupted! I wish I could see it in person–the quilting looks amazing.

    Almost worth driving up to Ohio (from northern Virginia!!!) but my life is different now.
    I love these two gems. I love old stuff, I love stories that go with handmade items. Thank you for sharing these two. Just treasures indeed

    I’m looking forward to seeing this exhibit, thanks for the reminder!

  4. That looks like a wonderful place to visit. The two quilts in the photos look like spectacular works… It always makes me wish these old quilts could talk! Thank you for taking part in saving their history.
