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!!!

The Hewson Fabrics are here and they are wonderful!!
The Winterthur Museum John Hewson Fabrics by Andover Fabrics arrived last week and they are wonderful!!! Can't wait to start making a Medallion Quilt with them! The quality of the fabric is stupendous! The vase shown above is about 21" high and the floral below (see the little "corner" which is how the floral spray will be placed in a corner to tilt diagonally toward the center vase?) is about 17" high.....will probably applique in place using broderie perse if I can't figure out a way to piece it in. There are butterflies galore to leave in place or applique by broderie perse wherever you desire! The accompanying background fabric is the same fabric Winterthur and Jo Morton have both used before.....a faint linen-look appearance with a wonderful "hand". Google "John Hewson" to find antique quilts using his prints made in Philadelphia beginning in the 1770's. Many are in musems and will provide inspiration for you to make one of your own!!
