Anyway, I had recently purchased (yes I couldn't wait until after Christmas) Fons & Porter Presents Quilts from the Henry Ford: 24 Vintage Quilts Celebrating American Quiltmaking. This is a new book and well worth the money. It has some great history in it, and some pictures of gorgeous antique quilts. My first love is antique quilts. So I told Lucy I would show her a taste of what is in the book!
The top 2 pictures are of the pages where it talks about life, home and textiles of the time. Don't you just love those irons!
Then I scanned my most favorite quilt out of the book. I LOVE this quilt! Oh to be brave and make one like it. Isn't it lovely! This book is certainly a keeper!
Hope you all have a great Holiday weekend. I'm sure we will all be busy - so I wish you all a very happy Holiday!
