One of my desires was to visit the antique shops down there in search of antique quilts. I even kinda thought one might find its way home with me. But I just wasn't feeling the urge to part with my money. But I did find about 3 quilts that I loved and settled for these photos:
Lookie, lookie what I found!
|Hand pieced and quilted. Created in Texas about 50 years ago. Not sure what it's called but loved it!|
|my friend Michelle holding a double wedding ring quilt. It was all hand pieced and hand quilted.|
|and I found this Grandmother's flower garden and settled for a photo of it rather than bringing the quilt home|
Then we had 4 wonderful days together before I flew back to the west coast of Canada. I hope you enjoyed viewing these antique quilts. I sure did!
Michelle loved her birthday quilt and it blessed me so much to make it for her.
|Jelly Bean Jubilee !!!|
So tired and heading to bed. I think the jet lag has finally caught up with me.
Until next time,
Glad to hear you had a great visit with your friends... and got in some antique shopping as well!ReplyDelete

Thanks for sharing the pictures of the antique quilts - you were a strong girl to resist such beauties. I really like the flower garden one...
