I've owned my quilt shop since 1990, specializing in antique reproduction fabrics. Made my first quilt in 1976 which greatly reduced my sewing of clothing! Would like to find more time to SEW.......maybe when I retire? Am married to a farmer, have 3 children and 4 grandchildren who are the light of my life!!!

Made this little 4-Patch quilt (2" blocks) from charm squares of the New England Quilts from Olde Sturbridge Village collection by Curator Aimee Newell. The Whites were way too White for me, so I used "Distress It" for the first time and am very happy with the results. I sprayed lightly a couple times until I was happy with the color. Check the Before and After photos! "Distress It" is a spray that was recommended by Jo Morton, having been developed by a Rughooker to age her hooked rugs. Am using a wonderful Pemberley floral (early 1800's reproduction fabric) for borders. Plan to handquilt it and use wool batting.
