I hope you enjoy the interview with Sandy. She has great tips about antique quilts – where to find them, how to care for and store them. If you need more information about antique quilts, let me know and I can put you in touch with her.
Podcast: Episode 5 – Meet Sandy and Her Antique Quilts
Things I have been working on:
Card for Coach
Not sure what Dylan drew exactly and I may have gone overboard with the decorative stitching.
I decided not to put pictures of the Under the Sea challenge yet. I will put them up next time and let you know how terrible I did in the challenge. =)
Here are some pictures of my quilting “studio” if you are interested. Everything was sort of picked up…
A few more pictures
Here's the quilt I bought from Sandy.
Here's the quilt my grandma made me when I was 5.
A few pictures of Sandy’s quilts. The pictures just do not do her collection justice. She was so kind to allow me to take pictures. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
Green and white quilt Sandy mentioned, which hangs above her bed. She must have the sweetest dreams.
This Beauty hangs high on Sandy's wall. Her husband must risk life and limb to change it out at Christmas, but only after the life insurance premiums are current.
The yellow and white quilt is the $4 find Sandy mentioned. What a find indeed.
Sandy's oldest quilt. See how it is wearing and falling apart. Handle with care!
More lovely quilts greet us as we climb the stairs.
More quilts stored on the stair landing
Sandy had this one quilted in red. I wish I had got a picture with the full effect. It's quite amazing. I guess I will have to go back and get more pictures.
In fact, when I go back, I am staying in this guest room. Sandy, my bags are packed.
Now I lay me down to sleep....
Awesome quilts in Sandy's dining room
