stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
This quilt had been rescued from under a tractor.
And this folded log cabin from a skip.
Others had been purchased and made by her.
She generously shared her collection and let us touch her antique and vintage quilts. We got to examine good, bad and amazing stitching up close and enjoy a snapshot of British quilts from wholecloth to hexagons. Barbara houses a motley collection of wornout, unfinished quilt tops alongside beautifully finished gems because she understands the significant history and emotion that has gone into making them.
It was such a treat to spend the afternoon with her and her quilts, thank you Barbara and Oast Quilters for organizing her visit.
Happy Mothers Day!
