Did I ever make mention of my passion for quilts? Which is quite odd for me to collect SO MANY quilts, being that I live in Florida. LOL. I used to joke that I'm ready for a nuclear winter, but with the winter we've had this year, I'm just happy to be ready now!
These are not "my" quilts. I shot these on a quilt show trip with may aunt and cousin.
I wish I could find a story I read in Country Woman magazine a long time ago.... it was about an avid quilt collector's recollection of responding to an ad an elderly lady had put in the paper She was selling her award winning quilt collections. The quilts were all plain, no fancy stitchery, or special appliques. The story went on to explain the reason for the awards and blue ribbons, and grand champion ribbons were that each quilt had a special story...a history behind them. They were special because of the love that prompted each block.
Have a great Sunday...and be sweet!
