Quilt Study Day at Judy's!!

We were a group of seven at Judy's house in Belfast for a day of quilt study!!  Always a pleasure and always learn/see something New!  Sue had bought an 1830-40 Hexagon (with earlier fabrics too!) quilt that we studied and photographed.  Take a looksee at these marvelous old fabrics!  Would they ever make a great fabric line!?!?!? 


Next month we plan to compare this one with one I have from about the same time period.



























 I remember that my Hexagon quilt had quite a bit of small green check!


Back soon.....some new stock to show you, including new Fabrics!!

  2. It's amazing how great these fabrics look for being from the 1830-1840s! Don't you wonder about the woman/women who made this, and how many hands have touched it, and how many and who have laid under it? Such a wonderful piece of tangible history.

    1. Part of our discussion about the quilts we study is speculating the very things you mentioned! If only the quilts could talk!

  10. Thank you for those wonderful close-up photos. Almost feels like I could reach out and touch! I so appreciate your interest in - and sharing of these antique quilts. I find it amazing how those bright blues have kept their color all these years.
