The theme this year is antique quilts. Hanging were quilts belonging to Linda Collins, Claire Jones, Bev Bannard, Jill Pearce and Leah Zieber, who is Linda's international guest this year.
Lots of photos following!
Can you imagine how long it took to stitch together all those triangles!! The hand quilting was amazing too!
Two basket quilts...
This quilt, Brenda's Bounty belongs to Linda Collins. The pattern for this quilt is in her book Treasures From The Barn.

Look at this tiny sewing machine!! :) Today was the first time I had seen a Singer Featherweight.
Many of the quilts on display were hand quilted. So much beautiful work!!!
This red and green quilt had a variety of hand quilted designs in the alternate blocks.
This is from a small whole cloth quilt.
This next quilt had a repeating block..
Embroidery, hand quilting and a scalloped edge.

A few more quilts..
Some interesting fabrics in this one.
Every year Linda has tables and chairs set outside for everyone to enjoy refreshments. On each table is an old quilt (covered with plastic to protect it from spills) These quilts don't seem to be photographed and shared as often as those inside the barn, so I thoughT this year I would share photos of some blocks from several of these quilts.
Thank you again to Linda, her army of helpers and all the local and international guests who have shared their quilts and expertise with us! All the best Linda for your future ventures!
